Not in the "targeted" cleanup. The targeted cleanup still keeps a "Precert
is not a cert", and only touches 4.9.10. This would allow CAs to provide
OCSP information for Certificates (as required) OR for
Precertificates (prior to || if they did not) issue a matching a
Certificate, if required by root policy.

Problem 2 would cleanup the "Precert is not a cert" by formalizing all of
the expectations of what "Precert is not a cert" means, and the practical
impact (e.g. on CRLs, on OCSP, on signature algorithms, etc). That's
formalizing the precedent.
