Both publicly and privately, we've expressed our concerns to the Ballot
authors and endorsers regarding Section 2 and its legitimacy to impact any
operations of the Forum.

These concerns were raised in
https://cabforum.org/pipermail/public/2017-April/010301.html , echoed in
https://cabforum.org/pipermail/public/2017-April/010327.html , and a key
factor in our determination of vote, as discussed in

We remain deeply concerned by this attempt to redefine misissuance in a way
that is beneficial to CAs, and in a way inconsistent with Section 2.2 of
the Baseline Requirements. CAs are obligated to "publicly give effect to
these Requirements and represent that it will adhere to the latest
published version." As such, Section 2's resolution has no force or effect
on the evaluation of the Baseline Requirements or its requirements.

There are ways to resolve this. Section 2 is not that way.
