> That said, I'm not sure we have a concrete proposal for a thing to do.

if you write a draft and have running example code, you are accused to
be just coming to the ietf for a rubber stamp (cf. sidr).  if you have a
draft and no code, idiots such as i comment that the rubber meets the
sky.  if you have code but no draft, you're a undisciplined hacker,
unless we're in an even numbered year where we're trying to snuggle up
to code.

imiho, we would benefit from making it easier to come in with a draft
and code, the first above.
