This is the kind of thing to which I'd normally pay
no attention at all, but I don't get away with that
these days;-)

Anyway, I do reckon this is an important issue and,
stilted language and all, this is very much worth
supporting. So, I'd encourage everyone to try find
out more about it and to support Russ and Bernard in
signing this, and to spread the message locally that
the IETF way of doing this stuff is, while not near
perfect, the best we've seen to date.
