Mostly it's an opportunity for CAs to share reasons and actionable data
about why this would be unreasonable.

As a representative of a CA responsible for considerable misissuance, I
would have thought you'd be supportive of efforts to improve security by
reducing the risk and damage caused by rogue employees, rogue RAs, and
whatever rogue elements might cause future misissuance.
