Anyone can Contribute with ideas and opinions in any area that is in 
scope of the Server Certificate WG, including Interested Parties. We 
don't need to establish "legitimacy" to engage in discussions about EV 
or other topics. I remember when HARICA didn't issue EV Certificates and 
still participated in these discussions.

Also, please remember that whatever we do "outside the Forum", should 
stay "outside the Forum". The fact that Chrome and other Browsers moved 
the EV indicator is not related to the EV Guidelines.

We are here to improve the standards so please let's focus on that goal :-)
