RE: [Ltru] Possible RFC 3683 PR-action

The closest I could find was:

"Working groups SHOULD ensure that their associated mailing list is
 manageable.  For example, some may try to circumvent the revocation
 of their posting rights by changing email addresses; accordingly it
 should be possible to restrict the new email address."

from page 5 of RFC 3683.  Misrepresented identities may fall under the 
same banner as changing email addresses for the purposes of RFC 3683.

I cannot find one.  It seem to be a hole than needs filled.

Does the IETF have a policy regarding misrepresented identities?

In the particular incident, it is assumed that the person using the 
name of a famous French aviation pioneer is in fact someone else. On 
the one hand, using pseudonyms is a form of free speech. But on the 
other hand, in a standard setting body, hiding identities is not 
necessarily something we want to encourage. What are the implications 
for our standard process? What about copyrights and patents?
