Applicability Statements have long been popular in the IETF.  They are an obviously good idea.

Less obvious is whether they are worth the effort.

Who uses them and what is the evidence they are worth the effort?

This would be a good topic to raise at the BOF.

Mailing lists are generally viewed as the best place for raising and discussing issues.

Meetings have very limited time, and -- worse -- the real-time (spontaneous) nature of meetings does not permit sustained consideration.

So I'm raising the question now, hoping for responses /before/ the meeting, as input to the meeting.

Dave, I was not being flippant when I wrote "good topic for the BOF". I am happy to have a discussion of this now, but this needs answers from more than just me.

My personal opinion is that I find them useful. Other people might disagree.
