The BRs use the term misuse/misused in multiple places in regards to reasons
for revocation, and Subscriber representations, but do not define the term.


What constitutes misuse of a certificate?  Phishing?  Fraud?  Or is it only
compromise of the private key or other action that results in someone who is
not authorized being allowed use of the certificate?  Or is it something


Because it is undefined interpretations are all over the map.  IMO the
definition needs to be pinned down and codified in the Definitions section
of the BRs.
