Reiterating and possibly clarifying what others have said in the past:

I think about 80% of this project is a waste of IETF resources.

I suggest that we concentrate ONLY on providing very granular Atom feeds 
for draft status changes, Then, we can leave everything else (graphic 
presentation, update periods, privacy, sharing) to the users. People can 
use desktop RSS readers, or the easier but more limited Web-based 
alternatives, e.g. Google Reader.

With the proposal on the table, what we're getting ourselves into is yet 
another enterprise-level Web application, with all that that involves. 
Yes, even Web application security.
