No, it involves two sets of signatures.
The traditional set and the new, yet-to-be-precisely-defined set.

It could be that CAFORUM rules would presently prevent these certificates
From going into production, and during an experiment, that would be okay, I
think.

The reason to start this work now is to wring out the obsticales such as
BR/CABFORUM rules that would prevent/slow-down adoption.
