[cabf_validation] Required Website Content

I'm OK with striking the term "Required Website Content" and using "Request
Token or Random Value" without adding in the additional unique
identification of the Subscriber clause. Or we could change "Required
Website Content" to just be a stand-in for "Either a Random Value or a
Request Token."

That said, ACME does need "Random Value" part of that clause, as its
authorization flow is not compatible with the first clause of "Request
Token", as when ACME clients validate domains they do not yet have a
'certificate request' (assuming still that means a CSR).
