Should that same logic apply for those with such tax authorities?

That is, wouldn't it make sense to explicitly list the countries where EV
issuance is permitted, according to these rules? That would certainly make
it far easier to note which countries are permitted to obtain EV
certificates, and what methods for each country are acceptable for that
validation, on a country-by-country basis. This uniformity in approach
would make it easier to avoid misinterpretation about whether or not a
given jurisdiction meets the requirements posed.
