I respond to the CoE by citing the CFJ.

Wonder what happened to that.)
Maybe let a CoE include a connected CFJ, in which case a response
might not be mandatory.
Without such an explicit connection, such a clause could make a report
accidentally not self-ratify because of a CFJ that wasn't even intended
(or stated) to be relevant to it, which seems to me like a bad idea.
