If that's true it would be a serious flaw in the BR. Mustn't a domain be 
re-validated at least after max 13 month? Personally I would expect any 
reasonable CA to revalidate more frequently anyway.

Also the web trust audit has requirements for identifying certificate 
requests and its authorization, not sure where the BR stands on this 
(without reading the whole thing again).
