Ignoring the rest of your post and just picking up on this part:
3. with regard to process transparency, you have all had a chance to
read my thoughts about california's "sunshine law" which holds that:
The people of this State do not yield their sovereignty to the
agencies which serve them. The people, in delegating authority,
do not give their public servants the right to decide what is
good for the people to know and what is not good for them to
know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may
retain control over the instruments they have created.
(Gov.Code § 54950)
I love this law, and I do think that we should live up to this
standard in the IETF! I agree that we are short of the mark in some
ways today, and I think that we should change that.
and i've brought this up when i think that the servants to whom
authority has been delegated think that "the people" do not have a
right or need to know what's really going on. after the last time i
aired this concern, various people mouthed the right slogans, but the
nontransparency has remained, along with my concerns. apparently,
i'm just not getting through.
The wall may be thick, but I think that we're making progress. So,
Where do you see problems in this area? And how can we fix them?
