This is venturing into dangerous territory. The best expertise on
the technical issues involved _should_ be in the WG that produced the
document. Expecting to find _better_ expertise within the IESG seems
less than rational...
But the Kerberos WG still has to define protocol operations where
strings are compared.
Sometimes a WG needs help with issues outside their core purview, and
sometimes they won't discover that until their documents hit the IESG.
(apologies to the Kerberos folks, who, I think, are now very much
educated on those specific issues, for using them as an example....)
