+1 IESG.

Whenever you don't steer, you get criticized. And whenever you steer, 
you get criticized.
It's one of those situations where we can't get everyone happy. Full 
stop. Leading is not about making everybody happy.

You took the decision to the best of your knowledge.
Thanks for steering, the Internet Engineering _Steering _Group.

Now, let's all get back to work...

Regards, Benoit

> +1 - Thank you.
