Yes, i find it so sad to realize that the threat to kill the group may 
actually force people to stop the work.  And thus the effort being put 
into closing this group by the ADs is effectively an effort to stop the 
work.

I can only wonder why there is the rush to kill this work group.  it is 
not using up great amounts of resource and it is, in my opinion, doing 
useful work.   Is there only one type of acceptable way of working in 
the IETF now?    I have never read any documentation that describes an 
acceptable level of discussion and participation.
