That must be the message at I 
do not think that could be summaried as "many people from those 
organizations" unless "many" is considered as at least three.

I would like to respectfully point out that the philosophy is an IAB 
document and not an IETF document.  Quoting from

   "[The] explanation of the document's efficacy leaves me skeptical. We should
    always do something for a reason."

There is already a reference to RFC 2026 in the draft.  Nobody has 
argued that RFC 2026 is inadequate in describing the IETF process or 
its philosophy.  As such I would like to understand why the editors 
are insisting on having that reference.
