Well, from the table in that document, it seems that both Eddy and Tim
proposed 1 year (or 13 months probably, in practice) for DV certs, which
is the largest class of cert (albeit perhaps DigiCert would say it
doesn't issue them?). So the possibility of 1 year for at least some
classes of cert has been on the table for a while now.
