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

Hi Inigo,

You can take some guidance from previous successful efforts to convert 
existing documents into RFC 3647 format. The latest attempt was in the 
Code Signing BRs conversion in May 2022. Check out the mapping document 
and the comments in the ballot discussion period 

For each existing section/paragraph, it would be nice to have a comment 
describing where that existing language will land in the converted 
document (destination). This will allow all existing text to be 
accounted for.

During this process, you might encounter duplicate or redundant text 
which needs to be flagged accordingly. You might also get into some 
uncertainty as to which RFC3647 section is a best fit for existing text 
that might require additional discussion.

I hope this helps.
