This ballot updates the TLS Extended Validation Guidelines (EVGs) by removing the exceptions to policyQualifiers​ in section 9.7, to align them with the Baseline Requirements (BRs).As result, this ballot changes policyQualifiers​ from MUST​ to NOT RECOMMENDED​ as stated in the TLS Baseline Requirements, resolving a discrepancy introduced by Ballot SC-62v2<https://cabforum.org/2023/03/17/ballot-sc62v2-certificate-profiles-update/> between section Subscriber Certificate Policies<https://cabforum.org/working-groups/server/baseline-requirements/requirements/#71279-subscriber-certificate-certificate-policies> of the BRs and the Additional Technical Requirements for EV Certificates<https://cabforum.org/working-groups/server/extended-validation/guidelines/#97-additional-technical-requirements-for-ev-certificates> in the EVGs.

The following motion has been proposed by Paul van Brouwershaven (Entrust) and endorsed by Dimitris Zacharopoulos (HARICA) and Iñigo Barreira (Sectigo).
