This isn't a question of clarifications to people consuming the
document.  It's discussion among the people involved with *process*,
and it's about the process.  Once the document is published as an RFC,
consumers will see the RFC (and it will be labelled "Standards
Track"), and all this process-related discussion won't matter.

Don't worry about this point.
