Some comments:

Item 1 would originally allow confirmation of the domain name registrant using a WHOIS review. Now this must be done using a Reliable Method of Communications which does not appear to be compatible.

Items 2, 3 and 4 now state "Confirming authorization of the Certificate's issuance". The purpose of section 11.1.1 is to confirm "the Applicant either is the Domain Name Registrant or has control." I don't think we need the new language about certificate's issuance.

Thanks, Bruce.

Subject: [cabfpub] Domain Validation Revision

Attached is a draft proposal from the EV working group about revising the domain validation in the BRs.  The intent is 1) to eliminate the "any other option" (as it made domain validation essentially meaningless, 2) tighten up the domain validation language, and 3) permit attorney/accountants to draft the domain authorization document.

Note that revising this section will automatically revise domain validation in EV. Also note that this is a draft from the working group and not yet a proposed ballot.
