Hi Alissa,

One general comment is that I suppose that this is really "RFC Editor Model (Version 2.1)" since it's a small variant on Version 2, and I imagine we'll be having a Version 3 in not very long, with more fundamental changes. In any case I think the title really should be slightly updated.

I think that completely removing the section would be a mistake, since it makes a fairly important statement about the RSE's neutrality (something I think we will be boosting when it comes time for Version 3, so this section is also a placeholder). But of course you are correct that we don't want any inconsistency with the LLC policy. Could I suggest that the section is reduced to:

2.1.7.  Conflict of Interest

   The RSE is expected to avoid even the appearance of conflict of
   interest or judgment in performing these roles.  To ensure this,
   the RSE will be subject to a conflict of interest policy
   established by the LLC.
