So, I suspect that the large percentage of the non-00 drafts getting
kicked back are due to the IETF Trust requirements changing over
time. We can argue (and have argued!) about all that, but I think
saying "idnits" is likely just shooting the messenger.
I wouldn't be surprised. And although "idnits" catches the bullets
that should be aimed elsewhere, it is where the problem is discovered.
In a perfect world, we would ensure that the users are educated enough
that they can discern the correct entity to blame and file their
reports correctly. But in the real world, the target audience turns
over fast enough that (collectively) it cannot learn. So would be
more effective if the necessary information is presented to the user
at the moment the problem becomes evident.
