By leaving the document as is, the document won't have to be update if we change how IASA is implemented in the future.  I think the other RFC updates that need to be done to remove references to IAOC highlight how keeping IASA in this document is really the right answer.

Lou is correct.   From my read the changes proposed are not correct.

Please reread <draft-ietf-iasa2-struct-06>.  It’s current title is:

   Record of Proposed Structure of the IETF Administrative Support Activity
                          (IASA), Version 2.0

The Abstract is:

   The IETF Administrative Support Activity (IASA) was originally
   established in 2005.  In the 13 years from 2005 to 2018, the needs of
   the IETF have evolved in ways that require changes to its
   administrative structure.  The purpose of this document is to outline
   a proposed new "IASA 2.0" structure and to document the decisions
   made by the IASA2 Working Group over the past 20 months in developing
   the proposed structure.  The proposal is for the work of the IETF's
   administrative and fundraising tasks to be conducted by a new
   administrative organization, the IETF Administration Limited
   Liability Company ("LLC").  Under the proposal, the Internet
   Administrative Oversight Committee (IAOC) will be eliminated, and its
   oversight and advising functions transferred to the new LLC Board.

The IASA will still exist, we are changing it’s implementation.  If the meeting venue document needs to change, the changes should be like s/IAOC/IETF LLC/.
