Regardless of whether this ballot passes or fails, I hope you can see
that this situation is a big problem, both for those customers and for
the ecosystem. If, say, there are misissuances and an intermediate has
to be revoked, these customers will have big problems if they can't
change all their certificates quickly. And if there are lots of
customers like this, it creates a problem for moving quickly to deal
with security problems.
