It seems that there's general agreement that postponing the effective date
represents a 'minor' change, for purposes of Ballot formation, and does not
require restarting the discussion and/or voting periods. To that end, I
will repost to the public list a revised form which takes into Gerv's
remarks about what an appropriate _Baseline_ requirement is. Recognizing
that such proposals are inherently a baseline, rather than best practice,
and recognizing that different browsers / root stores may have more
stringent security requirements, it doesn't undermine the Ballot to
acknowledge that, but neither should it be seen as an endorsement that this
is the 'best practice' timeframe for deployment.
