This should be easy to resolve, after which I plan to ballot "yes":

It seems like this needs to update at least RFC 5280. Section 4 creates what I
assume to be a new requirement for all email address domains in X.509
certificates to conform to IDNA2008. That seems like a reasonable requirement,
but if we want people reading 5280 to know about that requirement, we need the
"updates" relationship.

Also, section explicitly says it updates a section of 5280.


Editorial Comments and Nits:

- section 3:
--  Please proofread section 3 for missing articles.
-- please consider reformulating " ... subjectAltName MUST only be used when
..." in the form of "... MUST NOT be used unless..."  (MUST ONLY can be
ambiguous about whether you mean "MUST NOT unless" or "MUST do this and nothing

- 4: "... (and avoids any "mappings" mentioned in that document)"
