Unless the IAB is specifically interested in the topic, if
keeping it as an IAB-sponsored list requires that someone from
the IAB actively monitor it and approve postings and/or
memberships, my guess is that it is better turned into just
another IETF non-WG list with the subscriber list moved over
except for anyone who wants to opt out.  Personally, I'd prefer
that the IAB were actively interested and I like the very low
noise situation, but, as people keep reminding me, I had a pony
many years ago and would like another one.
