You’re still missing “only” in 22.214.171.124, it should be (from github):
Subject attributes MUST NOT contain only metadata such as '.', '-', and ' ' (i.e. space) characters, and/or any other indication that the value is absent, incomplete, or not applicable.
The rest looks good though!
In github the formatting of the items a-j in 126.96.36.199.2. is a bit messed up, but that’s a problem for another day.

Thanks Doug. Here is an updated ballot that should now match the redline:
Ballot SC16: Other Subject Attributes
Purpose of Ballot:
This ballot intends to clarify requirements placed on Subject attributes in Subscriber certificates in BR section 188.8.131.52 and EVGL section 9.2.8. Specifically, Subject fields must contain more than just metadata if they are present in a certificate. OU field are permitted in EV certificates, but no unspecified Subject attributes are permitted.
The following motion has been proposed by Wayne Thayer of Mozilla and endorsed by Doug Beattie of GlobalSign and Tim Hollebeek of DigiCert.
-- MOTION BEGINS --
This ballot modifies the “Baseline Requirements for the Issuance and Management of Publicly-Trusted Certificates” as follows, based on Version 1.6.3:
Capitalize the heading of Baseline Requirements section 7.1.4 Name Forms
Add a second paragraph to Baseline Requirements section 184.108.40.206 as follows:
Subject attributes MUST NOT contain metadata such as '.', '-', and ' ' (i.e. space) characters, and/or any other indication that the value is absent, incomplete, or not applicable.
Replace Baseline Requirements section 220.127.116.11.2(j.), in its entirety, with the following text:
j. Other Subject Attributes
Other attributes MAY be present within the subject field. If present, other attributes MUST contain information that has been verified by the CA.
This ballot modifies the “Guidelines For The Issuance And Management Of Extended Validation Certificates” as follows, based on Version 1.6.8:
Replace EV Guidelines section 9.2.8, in its entirety, with the following text:
9.2.8. Subject Organizational Unit Name Field
Certificate field: subject:organizationalUnitName (OID 18.104.22.168)
Contents: The CA SHALL implement a process that prevents an OU attribute from including a name, DBA, tradename, trademark, address, location, or other text that refers to a specific natural person or Legal Entity unless the CA has verified this information in accordance with Section 11. This field MUST NOT contain only metadata such as '.', '-', and ' ' (i.e. space) characters, and/or any other indication that the value is absent, incomplete, or not applicable.
Add EV Guidelines section 9.2.9, with the following text:
9.2.9. Other Subject Attributes
CAs SHALL NOT include any Subject attributes except as specified in Section 9.2.

The contents of the ballot does not match the github contents. I’m OK with the github, but the body of this ballot needs a couple of changes.
