So your suggestion is that we continue to accept audits against either
set of criteria until the situation is more clear? I.e. that there's no
point setting a cut-off date now?

Here's an alternative question: if we were to set a cut-off date at some
point in the future, how much lead time would ETSI-audited CAs need?
Obviously, if I said "OK, all new audits have to be the new standard,
starting tomorrow", and you were right in the middle of your audit, that
would be rather irritating. Would 3 months be sufficient between the
setting of the date and the date itself?
