So, to answer the original query:

"No, they don't expire after 6 months, though there are a few minor
differences between the two queues."

And, to answer Bob Braden's query:

"Bob, the practice and the theory appear to mesh fairly well."

May I add a query?

"Why does it appear the RFC Editor does not know this information or, it might appear
to an uninformed outsider, does not care what the answer is?"

Best Regards,
