The "not discussed at all" issue is one that could open up yet

Since those topics are probably as controversial as the ones
associated with the pending appeal, I'm going to try to avoid
them here and hope that, if people do want to raise them, they
will at least change the subject line.

I only tried to express that if one tries to resolve a discuss
one needs
to involve the Discuss holding AD somehow. And I have
personally not
heard a single beep from anyone until a week ago about this
part of the discuss.


Part of the problem here is similar to one that the RFC Editor
discovered and fixed some years ago. 

Because "DISCUSS" can mean, among other things:

        * I want to think about this for a while
        * I want to discuss it with other IESG members and find
        out what they think
        * I am expecting further input from the developers of
        the document

it is a little bit too easy for the third case to get lost.  It
obviously did in this case, for which I apologize.  On the other
hand, it would be, IMO, very helpful if the IESG cleaned that
situation up.

I'll let others comment on the substance of your note -- you
have probably heard enough from me.
