The user input mechanism has been opened up for this ballot, this could be an input path, not anyhow skrew in any way. One form for all to give their input.

As mentioned before, 13 months for improvement (everything else could be handeled by revocation), is too short timeframe. I also don’t understand the 13 months. If speaking about 1 year as final goal, it’s still 2 months too less for recent renewing periods. I also wonder 90-180 days are mentioned again, so we are back to (non best practice) automatism? I also read the same wrong arguments like automatism is about security, enterprises can react such fast (Gerv stated recently), 39 months is hard for them, 27 months is much harder, 13 months is absolutely unrealistic.
