One small, but I believe significant, proposed change to "On Authors, Contributors, Editors, and overload"
> * AUTHORS or EDITORS
> The designation AUTHOR or EDITOR is one that is made by the
> individuals themselves.
This isn't correct: it is the stream that makes the designation. For instance, if an IETF stream document comes to you with Paul Hoffman as Editor, and during review I say "I re-designate myself as Author", I would certainly hope that you would not accept that unless the stream manager approves.
Proposed new wording:
The designation AUTHOR or EDITOR is one that is made by the stream manager in coordination with the individuals themselves.
