I have to say that I find it a little odd that a document
constrained to describing current practice or a currently deployed
protocol would be adopted by a working group - usually I'd
expect that to be an individual submission.  The benefits
brought by going through the working group process and developing
a working group consensus about the document seem pretty
limited in that context.

What were the authors hoping to get out of going through the
working group process?
