PROPOSAL: Cluster 22 - CDEC (15 candidates)



These candidates are affected by various content decisions that are
being discussed by the Board.

Dot Notation: most of these candidates will be affected by a content
decision that has to do with a Level of Abstraction choice, so a Dot
Notation approach might be used in some cases, if Dot Notation is
adopted.

Same Codebase: CAN-1999-0002, CAN-1999-0098, CAN-1999-0265,
  CAN-1999-0428

Different Functionality/Multiple Executables - CAN-1999-0042,
  CAN-1999-0411, CAN-1999-0449

Different Attack or Time of Discovery - CAN-1999-0015, CAN-1999-0104,
   CAN-1999-0257, CAN-1999-0258

Default Passwords - CAN-1999-0186, CAN-1999-0254, CAN-1999-0452

Same Checkbox/Different Functionality - CAN-1999-0537


Note that either CAN-1999-0186/CAN-1999-0254 or CAN-1999-0452 *must*
be REJECTed once that content decision is decided, due to the
requirement that the CVE should not contain any overlapping
vulnerabilities.
