I'm not sure, could you highlight where you heard that this was meant to
address phishing?
https://cabforum.org/pipermail/servercert-wg/2019-August/000894.html certainly
doesn't list that as a motivation, and that has never been a motivation
with this ballot from any of the proponents, so perhaps you received
inaccurate information?
