I feel like this part of the discussion is crossing the boundaries set in
https://tools.ietf.org/html/bcp54#section-2 into personal attacks. Mirja
and Suresh wrote this draft trying to improve how the IETF works based on
their own experiences, and while they might or might not be proposing the
right solutions or have supported their proposal well enough to convince
everyone, they're not throwing bombs or otherwise behaving inappropriately.

It might be useful to let this sit for some cooldown period (for example
while Suresh reads a bunch of RFCs) before inflaming things more.
