By targeting 1 May 2017, any potential impact on subscribers does not manifest until June 2018. 

How this this follow?  A customer who has a certificate expiring May 2, 2017 can currently get a 39 month certificate.  However with this ballot they will have to get 13 month certificate.  The impact seems to be much sooner than you state.
