I've been an active participant in the ipng, 6man and v6ops IETF working
groups since 2002.

While I've only been to one IETF meeting in person since then (106,
sponsored by the Internet Society), over that time I've come to recognise
the names of many of the regular and active participants in these IPv6
working groups.

I do not recognise many of the names of people who are objecting to the
6man working group adopting the CRH draft.

Those who have been active 6man participants in recent years would know
that even an ID adopted by 6man, written by Bob and Brian, that had a
number of revisions, didn't survive WG last call, and that occurred while
Bob was (as he still is) one of the 6man WG chairs.
