I am now confused by this, because your proposed change removes the term
"Subordinate CA Certificate", which is defined in your updated language
in ballot 188, and replaces it with "Subordinate CA", which is not defined.
Your ballot defines:
"Subordinate CA Certificate: A CA Certificate that has been signed by
the Private Key associated with a Root CA Certificate or a different
Subordinate CA Certificate."
That seems right to me. So I am rejecting this proposed minor change. If
an update to the language is needed, we can make it in whatever ballot
ends up being passed to fix the issues people are finding with 188.
