Has "the IETF" been authorizing people to conduct human subjects research

I'm going to insert the root trust anchor into our recursive nameservers for
this meeting. For obvious reasons this will be the first time that this have
every been done at an IETF meeting.
Do I require the informed consent of the ietf participants to do that or
should I just chalk it up to tinkering?
One view that is expressed in this thread is that folks will generally know to
make reasonable choices.
The nature of your question suggests that, indeed, we need to be quite a bit
more clear about what it is that requires consent and what doesn't. I would
have thought that the difference between human subjects research versus network
management functionality changes would be pretty obvious. But what's obvious is
that it isn't.
