I doubt a WG chair would make a decision that the WG didn't like, but I
wasn't focusing on who "approves".
My main point was that the IETF (Wg chair, WG - whatever) doesn't
appoint (that is unilateral, and authors/editors can always decline);
they "invite" or "approve", however you prefer to view it.
