This is not a violent objection --more like a concerned
whimper-- but I note that we are still turning over rocks from
which new issues crawl. As recently as yesterday morning, EKR
reopened --IMO in a context that justified it-- the "outsource
everything" assumption that is fairly pervasive in the document.
I don't know what will come of that subthread, but maybe it is
relevant. And, this morning, some almost-unrelated discussion
identified the fact that, when some of us have been saying "fire
the IAOC" as the appropriate remedy for severe problems, others
have been hearing "tell the Nomcom" or "start a recall
procedure". Since it isn't clear that we now have a "fire the
IAOC" procedure --which I would define as clearing everyone out
of there except the IAB Chair, IETF Chair, and ISOC President,
and asking all of the appointing bodies to find fresh faces-- we
may need new text to reflect that... At least if others believe
that such a model is useful.
So I'd be happy to look at new text, but I'm not sure we are
