If that were true we wouldn't be up to rev 9 of the core draft.
9 revisions is not unusual.
It is also demonstrably true that one can keep revising a spec
forever. Some working groups are very good at it. On the other hand, they
are not very good at shipping a spec and getting it used. It would be nice
for the IDN effort not to suffer that fate.
