You are clearly not unique.   However, I doubt that there is any meaningful consensus the IETF as a whole could reach, so opening it up to a straw poll seems not to be a sensible plan.   I am sure there is a strong constituency for using MS Word as the tool of choice.   There may be some second contender that would be more popular than xml2rfc, I don't know.   But I don't think there is a single contender that could raise a plurality of support.   xml2rfc is Solomon's choice.   And it doesn't suck.   So it seems expedient to go with it.
