Just to echo what Alexey said ... and speaking as an individual ...

It is true that there are protocols that touch multiple areas, and the IESG 
did approve at least one BOF request that is RIGHT on the border between TSV 
and INT yesterday, so that's not a fatal flaw.

What concerned me is that there were so many work items that were spread 
across so many areas. I can't imagine chairing a group like that - I'm not 
even sure I can imagine filling out the conflict list!

I agree with Alexey here. My suggestion is to identify small discrete work 
items, focusing on what the protocol work is (because that's what IETF does 
best), and submit them individually to the right area directors.

I hope this is helpful.
