Let's Encrypt doesn't issue EV, so the CA/B Forum needs to agree that
DV certs can be issued for .onion names too (some people have suggested
that they would be called something other than "DV", but be analogous to
DV, based on proof of possession of a cryptographic key from which the
name is derived).
