[cabfpub] Draft Ballot - BR corrections (revised)

Below is a revised ballot based on ballot 167 which failed to get quorum. I was unable to get consensus on language around the new RFC reference text the previous ballot had in section 7, so it has been removed.
As a reminder, the intention here is that all SSL certificates that were allowed under the BRs are still allowed. This is a set of corrections and normative reference updates (such as moving OCSP to RFC 6960 to affirmatively allow SHA-2 family signatures on responses). I think that all the contentious material has been removed and is being held for future ballots, so I hope that this will move forward.
Do I have at least two endorsers?
Ballot 168: Baseline Requirements Corrections (Revised)
The following motion has been proposed by Peter Bowen of Amazon and endorsed by ___________________:
A number of small corrections and clarifications to the Baseline Requirements have been identified. These are, in general, changes that reflect the existing understanding of the Baseline Requirements by the Forum. Due to the understanding that these primarily represent existing practice, they are combined for efficiency.
