I would hope that this will generally be obvious. The folks who
understand/develop the technology that the DHC option is to be used
for. That could the SIP, IPS, LDAP, Kerberos, and SLP folk, etc. In
general, the DHC WG won't know much about how such options will be
used, so they can't really evaluate whether the option (other than its
encoding) makes sense. What I'm trying to avoid is having the charter
imply (or seem to imply) that the WG will take on any/all options
someone brings to the WG. I think it is fine for the WG to review any
option from the perspective of DHC, but it should be clear that
approval of all DHC options is a two step process. Acceptance from the
DHC community and the actual users of the option.

Thomas
