(excellent summary, Thomas. many thanks it. in fact, it probably should
be included in one of our process documents, perhaps working group guidelines.)
In general, IETF work has greatly benefited from moving review by
decision-makers earlier. It is extremely costly and frustrating to have a
working group haggle and resolve its issues, only to find that a
decision-maker in the critical path has major (ie, showstopping) concerns
that were not known early in the process.
Hence, the trend toward earlier IANA review of the Considerations section
is a Very Good Thing.
