This is a process document.  It describes how things work.  Whether you like current practices, there is still value in having processes documented.  I'm supportive of publishing this documentation of current practices.

As far as changes to the moderation of some of the more contentious IETF lists goes, it is very reasonable to start a discussion about how those processes might be improved.  It is perfectly normal for the update of process documentation to stimulate thinking and conversations about improvements to process.  However, any changes that result belong in the NEXT update.
