Publicly reposting what I just put in my IESG ballot, just in case you 
all want to disagree with me publicly. :-)

Perhaps I'm just being contrarian today, but I *do* think this document 
should be BCP and not Informational. It is not a requirements document 
in the sense that it is laying out requirements for future protocol 
documents being developed by a WG; it is a consensus document listing 
the requirements for the operation and administration of a type of 
device. If that doesn't fall within the 2nd paragraph of RFC 2026 
section 5, I don't know what does.
