Ok.  Just to close this loop, I have no problem with that at
all.  I was confused by your saying things several times that
sounded like "declare it done, hand it off to the RFC Editor,
and then maybe fix it somewhere in the editing process".

I think there are still some substantive issues with the
document and/or its surroundings, but, while my previous note
addressed some of the design principles, involved Julian and Joe
are more able to discuss the details from the standpoint of the
tool-builders and maintainers.  Whether it is seen as part of
this document or not, I would strongly encourage the IAB to make
sure that someone takes responsibility for getting the details
they need (and even those of us who occasionally still do an I-D
directly in formatted ASCII with emacs) nailed down before this
document is submitted for publication.
