The right to pseudonymity is, in my view, something pretty fundamental to
the ethos of the IETF(/IRTF). I went searching through our BCPs for a
statement to this effect and was rather surprised that I didn't find one,
though there is certainly nothing to the contrary. This strikes me as an
oversight that should be corrected.

rsw, please continue to participate under whatever handle you think best
represents you.
