I think there is something we lack (at least in up to date form),
which is "How to write your first Internet-Draft". There are 
certainly some tutorials at
but I think anyone starting today should probably start with kramdown.
That minimises the amount of XML magic that you need to learn.

Amplifying what John said slightly, the first draft for a new idea
is not a sales document, but it does need to indicate the use case
(what technical gap is being filled) and the basic technical idea,
and then expand the technical details enough to satisfy people that
the idea is workable and secure. It's hard work.

A running prototype is always good, too.

If the way forward is eventually a working group, there are a lot
more tricks to learn (such as how to have a successful BOF,
see but first you need to find
out if there are other people interested in the work. That's the
main purpose of the initial Internet-Draft and a discussion
