I think the first distinction is a 'mature' security process, and a 
'mature' CNA process. Very different things. In my list, those orgs 
on both accounts for a variety of reasons.

For starters, actually answering security related mails. Any org that 
not, should not be a CNA. That would immediately move Apple to the top 
the list, as they have failed to answer several emails from myself and 
colleagues over the last year. Mine were related to bad CVE assignments 
(e.g. duplicates) and other CVE-related matters, that they ignored.

Curious they are a CNA though, given their published advisories. =) 
Nothing from them in ages, and nothing from their parent company *ever* 
historically that I am aware of.
