I already stated my reasons in my prior message – and I was concerned that we had a deadline that was preventing CAs and customers from doing something they wanted to do.

Yes, I recall your earlier email – but it mentions “concerns” that should be “taken into consideration and balanced.”  (Your message was in response to an individual who wanted an .onion cert).  So is Google’s absolute position that .onion certs should not be issued as DV or OV certs?  Only as EV certs?

One other point – Ballot 144 only authorized .onion certs for EV certs – not for OV and DV.  Perhaps that should also be changed.

Given your opposition to the ballot, and your past remarks about groups doing "make work" for the sake of change, I'm somewhat surprised to see you suggest a ballot .onion for DV/OV, unless you're indicating that TrendMicro has done a 180 on the matter since the ballot passed.

Considering that this has already been a topic of the list, if it is something that TrendMicro is interested in pursuing, the thread from earlier this month can likely shed light into the considerations and why it may not be appropriate (yet) for .onion for DV/OV
