Yes, but I think the text does need to clarify how this relates to the IAB's
authority to "approve the appointment of an organization to act as RFC Editor".

I don't think there's a real problem here, but maybe a few words need
to be added to c), such as: ", subject only to IAB approval".

If you don't do that, we would strictly speaking need "Updates: 2850".
