Thanks, I guess that's Section 5 there.

Do you think there should perhaps be a new OID with semantics like "for
each identifier that is a subject of this certificate and that contains
'onion' as one DNS label, we performed both clearnet and onion site DV"
and so "you can feel free to access the .onion version of this site
while also believing that it's run by the same organization as the TLD"?
Presumably such an OID could be added by a CA without a new CA/B Forum
ballot because it's just asserting an additional check and not reducing
the CA's verification obligations.
