FWIW - (I have an idea about recreating the peer-based standards process to
not only build oversight into it to prevent one set of peers from
interfering with another set of peers efforts, something that runs rampant
in this IETF and causes tremendous damage to some initiatives, but a process
that WILL lead to more IETF standards for the Trust to hawk.)
if... Someone were to propose a project to the IESG under the IETF's IP
ownership controls, and in the process were to define:
1) Those vetting the technologies - and their roles in the vetting
What was to constitute proper vetting - and how it were to be
2) Those performing the prototyping of the properties
Identifying in the Project Plan who was going to do the physical
ports and a commitment from the Sponsors to make that happen.
3) and the plans for the project were all laid out... including the
test, interoperability and otherwise technologies
would the IESG protect this initiative and allow it to be started and
completed? This is a totally reasonable question about the IESG and what it
needs to control.

Lets ask Jorge if the Final RFP is different from interim
RFP's then dont all parties have to be given proper review and
response time to the final version? lest they recieve less
access or are not favorites in the bidding-contract
Todd, I think you are wasting everyone's time here. There are
no "interim RFPs", there are merely drafts for [IETF] community
review and comments. I presume that, once the final RFP is
issued (July 31 is the current target if I remember the
schedule), all parties will have until the submission deadline
to do whatever they will do with it. Clearly, if the final RFP
were issued, and then some update were to appear in mid-August
that changed the terms and conditions in a significant way, that
would be bad news. But I don't think anyone has proposed that.
