Thank you Tobias, that is a great point. My intent was not to require a
cert containing an onion name to contain only onion names. Does the
following change (in all caps) to section fix that?

The CA SHALL confirm that prior to issuance, the CA has validated each
Fully-Qualified Domain Name (FQDN), other than a Domain Name with .onion in
the right-most label of the Domain Name, listed in the Certificate using at
least one of the methods listed below. In addition, when issuing a
Certificate that includes an FQDN with "onion" as the rightmost label, the
CA SHALL confirm that prior to issuance, the CA has validated each FQDN
listed in the Certificate with "onion" as the rightmost label in accordance
with Appendix C.
