[cabfpub] Fixup ballot for CAA

Implementation of CAA turned up an issue to do with the recursive treatment
of pointer records. An errata has been proposed to fix the specification to
achieve the processing agreed to be desirable:

https://www.rfc-editor.org/errata_search.php?eid=4992

I would like to propose a motion to fix this issue so that implementations
use the search specified in the errata rather than the original text.

We are separately working in IETF to revise the search procedure to make use
of prefixed records which elides the whole issue which we could not do when
CAA was first proposed but can now. Unfortunately, that work is blocked on
the WG finishing its current internationalization work.

Here is a rough draft of the proposed motion. Comments?

 

Change the following in section 3.2.2.8 of the Baseline Requirements:

1) Replace the sentence:

"CAs MUST process the issue, issuewild, and iodef property tags as specified
in RFC 6844, although they are not required to act on the contents of the
iodef property tag."

With

"CAs MUST process the issue, issuewild, and iodef property tags as specified
in RFC 6844 as amended by Errata 4992, although they are not required to act
on the contents of the iodef property tag."
