It seems highly unlikely that CACert will return to ca-certificates,
barring its wider acceptance elsewhere, which won't happen in the near
future.  And if it shows up in a separate package, it should still
remain disabled by default in https-everywhere.  If in the future CACert
returns to ca-certificates, https-everywhere can re-enable the
CACert-dependent rules at that time.  Meanwhile, having them enabled
breaks browsing to sites that use CACert certificates, requiring the
user to manually disable each rule as they encounter certificate
warnings.
