Well, participants in the group and in CABforum obviously overlap,
but they aren't identical.  I think it's never wrong to get more CAs
(e.g.) to review our work.

Also, we could come up with a recommendation that asks for a photo
of the certificate subject's corporate headquarters to be displayed
full-screen for 10 minutes when an organization's EV cert is firt
seen.  (Just for the sake of argument. ;-)

CABforum would be the organization to make that information
available, so I'd rather keep them in the loop and look for some
point person to serve as a liaison.

Cheers,
