I think this proposed change actually makes 184.108.40.206.1 weaker. Previously it was necessary to validate that the Applicant and the Domain Contact were the same—some CAs might not have been doing this properly, but it was what the words said. Now you’re just validating that the Applicant has the same name and represents to a Q*IS that it has the same address.

The WHOIS contains the Registration (or similar) Number assigned to the Applicant by the Incorporating or Registration Agency in its Jurisdiction of Incorporation or Registration as appropriate. CAs MUST verify this by matching the Registration Number in the WHOIS with the Applicant's Registration Number in a QGIS or a QTIS.
> The first change is the use of Domain Name Registrant instead of Domain Contact, i.e. the focus is on domain ownership.
> The proposal requires that the name of the Registrant (in WHOIS) matches 1) the name of the Applicant AND either 2 i) the postal address of the Registrant (in WHOIS) matches the postal address of the Applicant (in sources accepted for EV validation) OR 2 ii) a Registration Number for the Registrant (in WHOIS) matches the Registration Number of the Applicant (in a QGIS or QTIS).
> The proposal addresses threats due to that organization names are not unique, the combination of organization name and address or organization name and registration number should be unique. It also removes ambiguities the current language permits (according to Jeremy - see attachment).
