Yes, EV will be a bigger target if consumers start to trust it (as we hope they will). Then we'll see if the vetting guidelines we've come up with are strong enough. If they aren't, the Forum will revise them until they are.
In the past, there was no standard for CA vetting and so no way to raise standards if there were problems. Now we have a baseline. We hope it's good enough as-is (with input from the community which is coming now) but, if it turns out not to be, we can change it and the CAs will strengthen their vetting.
