IMHO Sam's proposal was meant to help Randy and Harald (as the

as it turned out the IESG didn't need this and went with 3683.
having won and completed everything I needed (except two appeals to
come), familly priorities, the desire to give time to time, and some
calendar timing made me neither comment nor appeal yet. I explained
this to the IESG. Everything will be carried in due time. The real
problems (IETF ethic, IANA registry nature, deny of consensus,
respect of people, minority status, IETF user representation, IETF
legitimacy, IESG legal responsibilities, political nature of IETF
under RFC 3935, etc. etc....) have not been discussed.
Without this debate I think Sam's Draft is premature and will be
fruitless for the IETF. It is also of a certain importance to the
interest of such a debate to identify if the IETF wants to continue
being an acknowledged SSDO, or if it wants to become an RFC 3744
afinity group driven lobby. The way the IESG respects the WG-LTRU RFC
3066 Bis consensus will help evaluating this. The way the IAB will
address my appeal will also teach us about the way RFC 3869 is to be
understood by non-commercial R&D entities.
