It is correct that if CAs wish to use a longer organizationName, creating a new Attribute OID with a defined value without such an upper-bound is appropriate. However, as we do not afford special UI treatment to organizationally-validated certificates, nor do we have plans to do so, it would not be part of our development roadmap to afford any special treatment to this UI. 

Presumably the new OID would be used for EV, too.
