Right, and I think we all are actually in agreement over this.

Personally, I’d love to see the draft talk about AD participation just like it talks about other people's participation. If I really haven’t participated in WG X, well, I haven’t, even if my co-AD owns the group :-) And if I did participate, well, I should declare the IPR that I know of :-)
