Section 6.5.4 says:

   [NOTE:  These procedures intentionally and explicitly do not
   establish a fixed maximum time period that shall be considered
   "reasonable" in all cases.  The Internet Standards Process places a
   premium on consensus and efforts to achieve it, and deliberately
   foregoes deterministically swift execution of procedures in favor of
   a latitude within which more genuine technical agreements may be
   reached.]

It should say:

   [NOTE:  These procedures intentionally and explicitly do not
   establish a fixed maximum time period that shall be considered
   "reasonable" in all cases.  The Internet Standards Process places a
   premium on consensus and efforts to achieve it, and deliberately
   forgoes deterministically swift execution of procedures in favor of
   a latitude within which more genuine technical agreements may be
   reached.]

Notes:

s/foregoes/forgoes/

"foregoes" means "to go before; precede."
"forgoes" means "to abstain or refrain from; do without."
