The IETF Chair described an arrangement at  The 
intent of this message is not to limit any discussion or to 
discourage any discussion on

This thread started with a message from John Leslie [1].  There was a 
message from Brian Carpenter about "Fuzzy words" [2].  There were 
eleven messages about the two topics.  Will the discussions turn into 
long threads?  Discussions about RFC 2119 are a recurring feature in 
the IETF.  I would like to suggest submitting a draft about the 
problem and/or a proposed solution.  The author of the draft can then 
solicit reviews and contact an Area Director to ask about the next steps.
