I checked with Kathleen about this; she said:

"This is not something I asked for. I suspect that whoever asked for it
thought that it would be nice for the BRs to line up with the way most
CP/CPS documents are organized. But, it doesn't really matter to me.

If they change the ordering and the section numbering of the BRs, then I
will have to update Mozilla's CA Certificate Policy and a bunch of wiki
pages. So, it would be extra busy work for me."

So Mozilla is not against this change if other stakeholders see strong
value in it, but we are not requesting it for ourselves.
