Hi,

<http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5741#section-3.2.2> says:

    IETF Stream:
       "This document is a product of the Internet Engineering Task Force
       (IETF)."

       If there has been an IETF consensus call per IETF process, an
       additional sentence should be added:

          "It represents the consensus of the IETF community.  It has
          received public review and has been approved for publication by
          the Internet Engineering Steering Group (IESG)."

       If there has not been such a consensus call, then this simply
       reads:

          "It has been approved for publication by the Internet
          Engineering Steering Group (IESG)."

So are there documents approved by the IESG that did not go through an 
IETF consensus call before?

Best regards, Julian
