Actually, you've been given consistently constructive responses, and with vastly
more diligence and persistence than I'd have recommended. You are consuming
quite a lot of experienced and expensive talent on this list.
The core problem is that you've systematically rejected any that you didn't want
to hear; you seem to think that by pressing harder you will be able to steamroll
past folks with concerns or disagreements. The difference between a response
mode that attempts only to sell one's point of view, versus one that seeks
mutual understanding and agreement, is fundamental. There is nothing subtle
about evaluating which you've chosen. Persuasion versus collaboration are
fundamentally different goals. You've chosen to attempt the former, in a venue
that calls for the latter.
Take a look over the lengthy thread. Unless I've misread the exchange, you
haven't recruited any support. None. Yet garnering support is at the core of
how the IETF works. It is the key filter for making progress in the IETF.
Again: You have been given an extensive set of constructive responses. You
need to accept them and adapt your work and your working style accordingly.
