Thank you for making these changes - I'll kick off the IESG Eval and
put them on the telechat.

Unfortunately, because a number of ADs are stepping down (and because
we are close to IETF101) the next telechat is quite full, as is the
following one (2018-04-05), and so I'm planning on putting this on the
2018-04-19 telechat. This is ~7 weeks out - sorry.

I don't think the execution is relevant when it was obviously a bad
idea in the first place.
This is like putting rabid weasels in your pants, and later expressing
regret at having chosen those particular rabid weasels and that pair
of pants.
