I'm going to take the liberty of mentioning that I spoke with Ron
earlier today about this. Basically what he's asking is that there
be no process changes, and, I think, no policy changes, just
that IESG members should be mindful about how to phase experimental
stuff out when it's flopped.
Personally, I think he's correct about both cruft and mindfulness
and suspect that probably nearly everybody agrees with what he's
saying, anyway, but unfortunately it was presented in a form that
made it look like More Process.
