I agree that that the CAB Forum should use the same definition of "validity
period" as RFC 5280, e.g. by defining it as a reference to the RFC 5280
definition. If another thing is needed then it should have a different
name. All the uses of the term "validity period" in CAB Forum documents
should be audited to see which definition is actually intended.
