Providing a complete re-write of a WG draft is not only inappropriate,
it is disruptive.  Please read that sentence again.

The WG has an issue tracker set up for this document.  It appears that
the document editor and chairs are using it to track issues raised.  Why
should these concerns be handled any differently.

Perusal of the mailing list archives and the minutes of previous netext
meetings reveals no support within the WG for these perceived defects.
That could be a result of a disagreement with the concerns raised or
could a result of people not understanding the concerns.
