Can you explain what the security risks would be as you perceive it, if 
the lifetime would be increased to three years in particular for EV?

(Btw. I find the 27 and 39 month rather stupid, nothing prevents from 
re-validating and issuing a certificate after 24/36 month. It's just 
adding another 3 month to something that can done exactly the same after 
two/three full years.)
