I would be willing to support a document like this in the IAB stream, if that
were appropriate, but even if it's not, I think such a document would be a
classic example of the reason we need, and have, an Independent Stream. It
should find a home.
Many people pay attention to the authors of RFCs. An RFC saying "Foo considered
bad" with the IAB as the authors carries much more weight than one from Some
Guy, as well it should.
