If it is believed that the RSE will have a good relationship with the IAB, then it is probably overkill. That is, if any request from the RSE to the IAB to publish a document in the IAB stream always is allowed, RSE-generated RFCs have a natural home.

However, if the RSE is the one to publish the definition of new RFC streams and/or changes to the rules for any of the current streams, then "go to the IAB stream" is probably inappropriate.
