That's what happens when you go out standardising, as you well know.
All this, for something that is, in fact, not typically part of the

I think that its correct to say that this wg formation is a bit
special that way. Historical reasons probably, but my focus is
on getting it done rather than fixing the wg-formation process.
Feel free to take up that cause wherever it belongs, I do wish
you good luck if you decide to invest energy there!
Wait a minute. The threats document was specifically to satisfy Russ
as the sponsering AD to charter the WG. If Russ isn't satisfied,
then work remains to be done. If he is satisfied, then there is
absolutely no reason to widen the scope of this draft. Your job
here is to get this wg formed and nothing more at this time. All
other uses for this draft, including expanding its scope after the
wg is formed should be out of scope for completion now. The only
thing on that front that is necessary is to make the charter clear
about what we intend to do with this draft in the charter.
