Just to be clear: presumably you are not against CAs documenting and
reporting implementation experience, you are just against weakening CAA?

I definitely think we should either require or strongly encourage CAs to
document the actual problems CAA causes for them, if any, so we can get
a better picture. Whether we exempt certain categories of issuance from
CAA while we do that is a separate question.
