Thanks for doing this Inigo ... I know re-organizations like this are a lot of work and fall very much in the category of "important but not fun".  So thanks for taking an initial stab at this.

Is there a mapping that shows where all the original text ended up?  I think that's going to be essential for people to be able to review this.  I did some spot checking, and your conversion looks pretty good, but I wasn't able to do a more detailed review without a mapping.

Subject: [Servercert-wg] SC-065: Convert EVGs into RFC 3647 format pre-ballot

The current Extended Validation Guidelines (EVGs) are written in a non-standardized format. For many years it has been discussed to convert this document into the RFC 3647 format and follow the standardized model for this type of documents.

Given that this has been known for several years, I have prepared the following ballot text, which converts the EVGs into the RFC 3647 format:
EVGs based on RFC3647 by barrini * Pull Request #440 * cabforum/servercert (github.com)<https://url.avanan.click/v2/___https:/github.com/cabforum/servercert/pull/440___.YXAzOmRpZ2ljZXJ0OmE6bzoyOGIxNWVhZGVmZDlkZTM0NjQzZTA3YTlmYTA2MzM5YTo2OmExZWM6NGZmMGEzM2U0ZWZjOTU4MTM1NWRkNjU3ZDE5YjU3Y2YxNzg1NWU0ZTVjYzkzY2NjM2M0MWU5MzEyYzJmZTQ0NzpoOkY>

I am currently seeking two endorsers as well as any feedback on the ballot content itself (wording, effective dates, etc.).
