Standards processes are indeed built on trust.  I trust the editor of a
standards document to do a faithful job in keeping the document in tune with
the desires of the group writing the standard.  However, I get a chance to
verify my trust by being able to see and comment on the document before it
becomes a standard.

I trust you to try to get the new ECMA document in what you think is a
suitable shape and I trust you to try to keep what you think is suitable
aligned with what the group here has said would be suitable.  But if I don't
get a chance to see that normative document before the IETF document becomes
final, then I cannot provide the informed assent to its publication that is
needed as part of any reasonable standards effort.
