So, the only discussion I see for this draft is during this last call, 
on this list.

I see postings from a total of 4 people, other than yourself and the 
sponsoring AD.

None of the content of the postings relate to the issue about which you 
are asserting definitive information, above.

That reduces your assertion to one of your own authority on the topic.

No doubt, your assessment is perfectly correct.  However the IETF has 
typically sought a broader base for assessing such assertions, lest 
Internet Standards be reduced to individual whim.

Simply put:  The folk who want this spec and who want it to be exactly 
as you've specified it need to show up here and post their informed 
views on the spec.  Otherwise, there is no objective basis for 
estimating the actual need or likely uptake of the spec.
