very true. but throwing protocols "over the wall" and
ignoring operational input does tend to affect the credibility
and/or the usefulness of said protocol. Or are you suggesting
that the IETF designs protocols without regard to operational
maybe I'm misled but I've never thought of the registries as bodies
whose purpose was to collect operational experience.
but yes, I'd very much like for IETF to have more input from those
involved in operation, as well as having more input from more
applications developers, as well as having more input from those who
understand architecture, as well as having more input from actual users
or user groups. we need all of those kinds of input.
as an IETF member, i might suggest that those mountains will
not come to you on their own. i will suggest you follow
the advice Ray (and others) have given - If you want to
understand them and get their input, you have to go to
Opinions expressed may not even be mine by the time you read them, and
certainly don't reflect those of any other entity (legal or otherwise).
