If we are going to be pedantic, foo.wibble-fish.com has more labels than
fish.com and still "ends in" the validated FQDN in the same sense the
was objected to.

It would be much better to phrase this entirely in terms of labels.
Here's my first stab:

_Note_: Once the FQDN has been validated using this method, the CA MAY
also issue Certificates for other FQDNs that end with all the labels of
the validated FQDN and have more labels than it.
