SM, if you're talking about people in "leadership" (is that what we are?)
asking questions of the IAOC on the IETF mailing list, you may very well be
right.

But I do drop notes to the IAOC directly, either to the IAD or to the
overall IAOC, and I don't know how anyone in the broader community would
know that I've done that.

I suspect others do, as well.
