Jeff -- thanks for the comments. Do you think it would be reasonable to
reference the Chromium + Mozilla CT policies but not define a particular
policy in a normative way? I maintain that it isn't Expect-CT's place to
define a CT policy just as it isn't HSTS's place to define what goes in a
trust store, but I'm totally open to having the draft discuss some of the
factors that browsers should consider when choosing a policy.
