I support a change like this, but I am not qualified to say what the thresholds should be. There certainly isn't a reason to push it to very high limits. This change would not break interoperability, so it's a good one.

Banning CCM might break interoperability for someone, but I'm not too concerned, particularly if we can update all the browsers to not offer it.

A somewhat bigger concern is the lack of key update support in a lot of implementations: I read 9 of 15 servers as supporting it.
