For the sake of further discussion, by no means an official set of

Option D:  Seven numeric characters with leading zeros.

Option E:  Twelve numeric characters, no leading zeros.

Option F:  Twelve numeric characters, no leading zeros, starting at
1000 for each year.

Option G:  Infinite numeric characters, no leading zeros, starting at
1000 for each year.

I picked 12 because someone suggested 10+.  I'm also saying "numeric
characters" to raise the issue of treating everything after "CVE" or
"CVE-YYYY" as a string.  Not sure that capping it makes much difference.

Not sure this covers all the recently discussed options.

Also not sure how to handle this situation procedurally?  Declare a
mistrial and prepare another ballot, after further discussion?
