Not rejecting the idea of a drink, but just sharing with the wider community...

It is fun to exercise the full range of IETF process options from time to time.
The chairs did not think it was necessary to delay the draft by putting it into the adoption queue and going through all that piece of process when all that was needed was a last call.

Oh look! Officially there is no 's' on Communication. (Also right in the Introduction)
Thanks.

So, you think 'so' is so so-so?

Yup. Caught a couple of equally ambiguous cases.

Best,
