It is my personal opinion that Jefsey was trying to be legalistic, and
the IESG was legalistic in its response.
I only want one single thing: interoperability between the internet
of the users and the RFC 3935 IETF Internet as long as it survives.
Between a Multilingual, Multicultural, Multilateral, Multinational,
Multitechnology etc. Internet and the outdated Internationalized
Internet which delays it for reasons the IAB clarified a long ago in RFC 3869.
RFC 3935 says "The mission of the IETF is to produce ... documents
that influence the way people design, use, and manage the Internet
...  The Internet isn't value-neutral, and neither is the IETF. We
want the Internet to be useful for communities that share our
commitment to openness and fairness. We embrace technical concepts
such as decentralized control, edge-user empowerment and sharing of
resources, because those concepts resonate with the core values of
the IETF community. These concepts have little to do with the
technology that's possible, and much to do with the technology that
we choose to create."
I wanted the IESG to clearly state what are the core values of the
IETF community and their legitimacy to influence the world. Because
they have little to do with the technology that's possible, and much
to do with the technology that the IETF leaders (cf. RFC 3935) and
the IESG choose to create. I wanted the IESG to document what it
considers as "openness and fairness". To show our core difference.
Because the technology that is possible and I choose to create has
much to do with human rights and I believe it is technically far more
efficient for that very reason. The reason why we oppose is described
in http://nicso.org/equilang.htm the WG-LTRU opposed.
Legalistic, elastic, autocratic... I know of no other way to consider
the HR for technicians than what they must live by to make sure the
technology they produce will work better for the human beings.
A nd will eventually lead to better economic development.
Also, I know of no other way to respond an appeal than to speak the Truth.
