Since the goal for the effort described in the text I offered
is for full standard and not proposed, I have no idea what
your reference, here, pertains to.

Please read the rest of that sentence, which read...

 not even an exception procedure for Internet

Unless someone is going to argue that the omission of any
specific mention of Internet Standard in that discussion means
that known technical omissions are ok in full standards, I think
that is a bar to adoption of documents as full standards that
contain such defects.

The rest of the paragraph may or may not be useful, but the
above should answer the question of what the reference pertains
