Hello Adrian, WG,

I'm not always sure what are the appropriate DISCUSS criteria for a process
document. I hesitated and in the end chose NoObj. I'd nevertheless really
appreciate if we could discuss theses points.

The Document allows for an Expert to consider a request which doesn't arise
from a WG document (or an AD sponsored one) and does so by using SHOULD in the
   2.  The Designated Experts SHOULD only consider requests that arise
       from I-Ds that have already been accepted as Working Group
       documents or that are planned for progression as AD Sponsored
       documents in the absence of a suitably chartered Working Group.
and confirms that in:
   4.  If the document is not adopted by the IDR Working Group (or its
I am perfectly fine with that.
However, would it be fair to expect from the Expert that he/she communicates to
the list (as part of step 4) the "valid reasons" and "full implications" of
agreeing to consider this particular request?

Also, it isn't clear to me whether an Expert can refuse an allocation to be
made and what would be the criteria for supporting such decision. I do read
   5.  The Designated Experts MUST then review the assignment requests
       on their technical merit.
This could potentially result in a refusal, but I'm not sure in fact, but if it
allows for a refusal then that's very vague. There is of course point 6. but
that's given. Another way (not completely equivalent) of saying this is that I
get the impression that except in obvious cases (e.g., 6), all requests will be
granted. Is that the case?

Thank you
