OK. I was not paying that much attention in March,and if I'm too late,
I certainly have no problem with the community choosing to allow a
broader group to control the independent submission track, or to seed
that to the IAB.
I think though that the community ultimately needs to have the power
to take back anything it has given. Basically, I think it is critical
that ultimately everything within the greater IETF context be
accountable to the IETF community. That is true of the IESG, the IAB
and everything they do.
I don't think this document represents that.
