I think we're in rather surprisingly strong agreement here. Considering
that the BRs are currently attempting to control it, it sounds like
removing it (as was proposed), or, using the most excellent feedback from
Moudrick and Adriano, stating that 'misuse' is defined individually by the
CA, who places their definition for their constituencies in Section 1.4
(consistent with RFC 3467), seems like it achieves the desired result.
Would you disagree?
