Just to be clear, does this mean MITRE has reached out to all of the 
current CNAs and informed them of the new rules?

How should we approach CNAs that are violating these rules, via a 
long-term string of violations regarding an assignment. For example, 
has been using CVE-2014-8730 for their products despite the early 
in the entry from MITRE specifically designating it for F5 products 
I have contacted IBM half a dozen times over the last year or more 
pointing out examples of this. Their most recent mis-use of this CVE 
on Sep 19 (http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21390112). 
Moving forward, if they continue to mis-use 2014-8730, what is the best 
course of action since contacting them doesn't seem to help?
