Let me ask a silly question here: Why do we want to distinguish proto
shepherds from chairs? I at least hope all my WGs will produce
documents. That means most of my chairs will be proto shepherds.
Does the difference matter?
Since I'm in the To: list of your mail, I'm a bit baffled by your
question; my proposed solution in my earlier message to the list
was to not make a difference between the two...
Still, if you're asking what could conceivably be the difference,
my answer would be that it's appropriate for a chair to set the
WG state of documents which haven't yet been submitted to the IESG;
while it's (mostly) not appropriate for a Document Shepherd to do
