The Mozilla process does not guarantee trust as a pre-condition to taking
actions. Merely, in rejecting an application, it can give the reasons why
that application is rejected. Future submissions should therefore be
mindful to avoid repeating the same mistakes. That does not prevent new
mistakes from being made, thus new submissions should be mindful of the
Baseline Requirement, the Mozilla CA Policy, and the set of community
expectations and considerations that will be taken into account when
evaluating whether or not to trust any new certificates.
I do not believe it wise to accept this inclusion request, thus any new
inclusion request should avoid these issues as part of the design and
consideration - which would include ensuring that the infrastructure fully
complies with the Baseline Requirements and equivalent system controls. You
can always engage with an auditor or consultant to help design your system
in a way to ensure compliance, both prior to generating your keys and
certificate, and to ensure its continued compliance and responsiveness to
industry and policy changes over time.
