The relevant part is from section 2, basicly all of page 5 of the doc.
Everything between is about documentation requirements, just read
"New assignments must be approved by the IESG, but
there is no requirement that the request be documented in an
RFC (though the IESG has discretion to request documents or
other supporting materials ..."
This does not say that the _only_ criterion that can be used by the
IESG as a condition for approval of the assignment is that there be
adequate documentation. Nor, in my opinion, does anything in the
rest of the document imply that.
ps: I believe this is my last word on this topic.
