So the Notes will stay in Ballot 190 for certainty, BUT no one will be happier that I if the Validation WG goes back through Methods 1-10 and applies the standard terms Authorization Domain Name, etc. consistently to all 10 validation methods for a new ballot that eliminates the Notes.

If the Notes contradict the existing language, which of the two control?

I think Peter did actually go through all the methods and point out which kind of name gets validated.

I agree with Ryan and Peter here.  I think the existing language is clear and adding the Note just confuses the situation.  We have carefully written definitions of Authorization Domain Name and Base Domain Name to solve this very issue.
