Why not? This is a scenario that lots of CAs seem to be exercised about,
so it would be useful to know how often it happens, and what the
underlying cause is (primarily, if the record turns out to be correct
and the application is wrong or malicious, or whether the record turns
out to be wrong/outdated and the application correct).

So I am very keen to see CAs keeping records of this, because some seem
to think that this will be a highly common and deeply inconvenient
occurrence, and so I want data to prove or disprove that assertion.

The latter. Baseline Requirements apply to all certificate issuance.
