Description

Section 3.1 says “Anyone can submit a certificate (Section 6.1) to a log.” I thought I recall Rich Salz saying that Akamai would not log certificates for non-Akamai clients. If so, then maybe we should define two types of logs: “public” and “private” to make clear that not all logs all accept certs merely because the certs chain to an accepted trust anchor.

To be clear, the meaning is that 'any entity participating in the protocol can submit certificates'. Whether the log accepts the submission or not is up to the log's policy.
An amendment is out for review in https://github.com/google/certificate-transparency-rfcs/pull/114.
