Such whitelists already exist across many CAs, and even those who handle few 
long term or high volume relationships have automation or tools to assist 
their people with finding prior validations performed within 13 or 39 months 
that carry equal weight to a whitelisted domain in a managed services account.

The idea of this and only this work to validate a domain for 13 or 39 months 
and then rely on it for an undetermined number of certificates is indeed a 
heavy decision we've all been making for years.
