Yes, I agree with you categorization of the methods.
I hope other CAs send out the methods they use so the VWG can prepare a ballot to remove "any other method" from 220.127.116.11. I think DigiCert had some new methods that were discussed a while back regarding a new approach that need to be added to these.
I'm curious what our strategy will be. Will we include all the methods people use so we can remove "any other method" soon and then come back to the challenges of issuing certificates to DHCP type servers, or are we going to tackle this all at once?
