Hello, Jason,

Your note on the IETF blog says:

> sanctioned countries, or ever have in the past, as a general matter.

and:

> We have no data to suggest OFAC rules have ever prevented any

May I ask what's the basis on which you've arrived to such conclusion?


For instance, do we have a long list of participants or I-D/RFC authors 
that implicitly probe that OFAC compliance are not an issue?

Thanks,
