>> If there are more than five AUTHORS or EDITORS stream-approval is required.
> For reference, I believe this is the first documentation of this requirement. Up to now, the documentation has merely cited a strong preference for 5 or fewer, but no indication of a formal barrier nor the mechanism for overcoming it.
See section 2.12 of http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc-editor/instructions2authors.txt:
There is no rigid limit on the size of this set, but there is
likely to be a discussion if the set exceeds five authors, in
which case the right answer is probably to list one editor.
