Not speaking for Kent:  Adobe, popular browser vendors, things that
parse video/images/audio, Microsoft (already covered), office suites,
maybe popular chat software...  I'm probably missing something.

I think it's reasonable to stick with publicly available.  The stuff
behind the pay walls usually/eventually comes out, then it can get a CVE
ID.  The discloser might even be a CNA, or at least request CVE IDs as
the vuls come out publicly.  I wouldn't suggest trying to track hints
about upcoming releases or non-public vuls -- costly and inaccurate.
