Please either swap these, or move US-CERT: Vulnerability Notes to "full
coverage."

74% (average since 2009) of vulnerability notes (5+ per month) are based
on private reports to CERT, which means those vulnerability notes are
effectively an initial source of a public disclosure, and often already
have a CVE ID.

US-CERT: Technical Cyber Security Alerts are actually more likely to be
"republishing" on a Microsoft patch Tuesday release or similar.  Times
have changed since the days of CERT Advisories...
