I know the history, been involved… I was more responding to the fact 
that from the IETF process perspective, when something of that 
substantive nature, IESG had usually highly preferred to run this 
through a wg than anything else. And I know at least one past AD here 
that was very pushy in _not_ doing AD-sponsored drafts. Having said 
that, any way is fine by me.
