Do you have a link to that discussion/minutes? Is there an overview? It's
useful to have a 'big picture' view to understand where things are proposed
for going, if only to help contextualize the smaller changes.

This doesn't seem  to be purely renumbering. For example, each of the
section headers were renamed with statements, which are unclear if they're
meant to be normative or informative, along with an orientation around
principles. That seems to harken back to WebTrust/ISO 21188's approach to
auditing, but it's unclear why this change. Is there more context for those
renamings? Is this part of a broader effort, and if so, do you have a
pointer to those past discussions?
