[cabfpub] IV OID Ballot 150

Since the OID is optional, there will be no date in the ballot.
We are going to pull the ballot for a week to fix a couple of additional
comments received. I will advise once it's back up for voting. Thank you,

Is there an expected date for when CAs MUST start using this new OID (and
perhaps givenName/surname vs. organizationName) if they issue SSL
certificates to individuals? If so, we should include the effective date
for this in the ballot. If there is no date, then can CAs continue to issue
SSL certificates to individuals following the current practices indefinitely
(ignore MS requirements for a minute as I'm sure we're all negotiating
different schedules with them for compliance with their new Root agreement).
