SUIT is so much better than FUD.

(When we created the DICE working group, which was about “Improvements to DTLS for the Internet of Things”, we got some strong feedback that people weren’t going to install “IDIOT” modifications into their systems.
I think the same applies for “FUD”.  And the suits will quickly agree with installing SUIT :-))

I think this (part of the) sentence can be misunderstood, and it does not mesh with the rest of the charter.

The possible misunderstanding of this sentence is that this is going to be a “let’s fix the bugs in and make some tweaks to RFC 4108” WG.

The rest of the charter does not say this, but misunderstanding that sentence may make people read that rest under the presumption that bugfixing/tweaking RFC 4108 is all that is going to happen.
