Hi everyone,

This updates the section 8.4 change to use slightly clearer wording.

Can I get a couple of endorsers?

*Ballot XXX - Forbid DTPs from doing Domain/IP Ownership Validation
*

*Purpose of Ballot: *At the moment, CAs are permitted to delegate the
process of domain and IP address validation. However, permitting such
delegations is problematic due to the way audits work - the auditing of
such work may or may not be required and, if it is, those audit
documents may not make it back to root programs for consideration.
Although the audit situation also needs fixing, domain validation is an
important enough component of a CA's core competencies that it seems
wiser to remove it from the larger problem and forbid its delegation.
The purpose of this ballot is to ensure that CAs or their Affiliates are
always the ones performing domain/IP address ownership validation for
certificates that CA is responsible for.

The following motion has been proposed by Gervase Markham of Mozilla and
endorsed by XXX of XXX and XXX of XXX:

with:

2) In sections 3.2.2.4 and 3.2.2.4.11 (if still present in the text at the time the ballot passes), replace the following text:
