Jeremy: can we add a sentence to section in ballot 190: "CA's
SHOULD record the validation method used along with the validation data."
? Kirk has a reasonable point that people may not have done this in the
past, but we should make sure they do it in the future (or don't do it
at their own risk) so we are able to make updates to individual methods
without causing a revalidatiopocalypse.
