I was not proposing any ballot at this time.  I’m trying to get a sense whether there is any general agreement of scope rather than negotiate with each trust store.  We know that Mozilla is working to update their policies, Microsoft is continually refining theirs, and I suspect several other major trust stores are also working on new/revised policies, so it is my preference to get alignment from all ahead of those changes.

The alternative is to have each trust store maintainer define their own independent policy then attempt to comply with the disparate policies and cajole the maintainers to modify their policies to make concurrent compliance practical.
