But, it's for the charter, for the WG, it's not a treatise on attestation
itself.

This is all supposed to be *meta* text about attestation, about what we want
to say about attestation in the documents, not about what attestation is.

Please go read some other IETF charters:

https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/6lo/about/
https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/6tisch/about/
https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/suit/about/

Notice how by about the second paragraph (6tisch takes a bit longer), each
gets into what the WG will do?
