There are multiple fecframe WGLCs running for FEC schemes.

The charter is fairly clear:
"The FECFrame WG may develop new FEC schemes if necessary to provide
substantial performance gains for the intended applications. However
the acceptance of any FEC scheme will require multiple, prior, detailed
reviews of the FEC code by independent experts from both the IETF and
the broader community, since it is likely that the IETF working group
will not include a large enough number of suitable experts in its
working set. If these reviews are positive, then Working Group
acceptance of an FEC scheme work item still needs the approval of the
responsible Area Director. "

For the WGLC, I would like more than just a "sure I support this" email.

I would like a "I have reviewed the text in this document, I have reviewed
the code in this document, and this scheme significantly improves
performance for a use case that is important to me, which is <Š>. Therefore,
I support publication of this document."

If you have implemented or deployed this specification, and found no
problems with the specification, or plan to implement or deploy this scheme,
stating that would also be helpful.

Please convince me that these documents are ready for IESG Review and
deserve to be published as RFCs that are IETF standards because they address
real-world problems.
