I would highlight some of the points I made to Dean earlier, in

"Do you believe the CAs who find themselves in such cases were making a
good faith effort to participate in the CA/Browser Forum, knowing that
discussions have been occurring for three years on this topic? Did such CAs
simply assume that any possible attempt to change would be blocked? "

For example, do you believe that the discussion in
was a fair signal to take the time to evaluate with customers how long of a
transition period they would need? If not, how long should the CA/Browser
Forum discuss something before CAs take concrete steps to collect feedback
from their users, if 18 months is not sufficient time?
