[cabfpub] Fixup ballot for CAA

Jacob commented on Errata 4988 which I fixed (I hope) in 4992.
At this point, given that this is an errata and given that we are looking to replace the search in the next iteration, I prefer not to change the way the algorithm is described as that may well introduce a whole new round of confusion.

It looks like there has been some unaddressed feedback submitted by Jacob Hoffman-Andrews regarding the correctness of that Errata. Has that been resolved now? I haven't seen any acknowledgement from you on it.

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:
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 184.108.40.206 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."
"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."
