[cabfpub] Pre-Ballot 209 EV Liability

The rationale is that it is already current practice by many CAs to limit 
their total liability for CA operations.  Also, not that this will save 
anybody from going out of business in the event of a serious breach, and I 
suspect that such CA would simply file for bankruptcy protection, but it does 
map the $5 Million liability to the $5 Million in Errors and Omissions 
liability.  Some other members can probably provide some additional reasons 
why this ballot is a good thing--not just for CAs.

Can you explain the rationale for this ballot?
