Paul,

Under "has more labels", "example.com" and "example.com.example.net" -
example.com.example.net has more labels than the validated FQDN.

This is where the term "Authorization Domain Name" is much more
clearly worded, by describing that the ADN for an FQDN may be
constructed by

"The CA may prune zero or more labels from left to right until
encountering a Base Domain Name and may use any one of the
intermediate values for the purpose of domain validation."
