A new version of this document has been posted.
Based on the discussions that led to it, I wish to call the rfc-interest 
list's attention to two items in the document.  Please use a separate 
subject line in following up, and select the appropriate copy list.

Before I get to the two comments, a note of thanks.  The IAOC provided 
significant restructuring of the document.  This made the document MUCH 
more readable.  Thank you.

1) The IAOC provided specific text describing the vendor selection 
process.  This is intended to preserve the spirit of the previous 
versions of the document, while aligning it with BCP 101 and being 
clearer about what has to actually happen.  Several folks have expressed 
concern that it also changes the the degree to which the RSE is involved 
in the selection.  Others expressed disagreement.  This text has been 
reviewed by the IAB, but input from the broader community is sought.

2) As the RSOC began working, it was noted that the requirement in this 
document for documentation of the rules of the RSOC, and of the 
selection process for the RSE, seem much more strict here than in RFCs 
guiding other selection processes and bodies.  The text may well be more 
onerous than is needed to ensure suitable community transparency. 
Opinions on whether this can be relaxed, and suggested text, are solicited.

Thank you,
Joel M. Halpern

    The RFC Editor performs a number of functions that may be carried out
    by various persons or entities.  The RFC Editor model described in
    this document divides the responsibilities for the RFC Series into
    three functions: The RFC Series Editor, the RFC Production Center,
    and the RFC Publisher.  The function of the Independent Submission
    Editor is also defined here.  The Internet Architecture Board (IAB)
    oversight by way of delegation to the RFC Series Oversight Committee
    (RSOC) is described, as is the relationship between the IETF
    Administrative Oversight Committee (IAOC) and the RSOC.  This
    document reflects 1 year of experience with RFC Editor Model version
