Speaking for myself --

As noted in the appeal, quite a few documents relate to the revocation of 
posting rights.  They cover different types of lists, authorized enforcers, 
potential behaviors, remedies, and procedures.   At this point, the major 
issue seems to be non-WG lists.  I don't think that the full set of 
documents needs to be replaced to clarify most of the questions. That would 
be quite an undertaking and the IETF needs a clear, consistent set of 
guidelines in the meantime.

So it is possible that a "glue document" would do the job; it is also 
possible that the situation could be addressed without any documents at all, 
just by a clear set of guidelines and a statement of policy  The major issue 
is whether the policy is clearly stated, widely understood and agreed to by 
the community and fairly administered.
