As of the reasons mentioned before, I still suggest to keep the 3 months (90 days) as they currently are

    But (now that CAs have explained to Ryan why one is necessary) no-one is
    saying there should be no buffer period. Any discussion is about the

    period, if you want to keep the same annual renewal date.
