The IESG notes that the community could establish a variety of
guidelines describing what is and is not acceptable in experiments.
Historically, the IESG has made decisions based on its perception
that there is a strong desire in the community to publish technology
that is being deployed experimentally. We encourage community
and development of more specific guidelines on operational conflicts
caused by experiments and how this should affect what we choose to
publish. (However we recommend that such discussion
focus on the general issue rather than the specifics of any case.)
