I will fix in the next version.

> There has been a significant discussion of the RFC Editor Model since July.  Section 2.1.5 of draft-ietf-iasa2-rfc6635bis-03 was not adhered to since several years.  The qualification described in Section 2.1.6 does not reflect what would be sought in a person to fulfill the role of RFC Series Editor.  The description of the oversight role of the RFC Series Oversight Committee, described in Section 3.1, is not aligned with what could be envisioned for the RFC Series.

The direction on this draft was to only change parts of the document that related to the change from the IAOC to LLC.

The larger issues with the RFC Editor need to be resolved, but I don’t think the LLC related changes should be delayed until that is complete.   It’s going to take a while in my view.
