This is not about the technical aspect of your message.

Can you clarify why this is RSOC business? I don't understand where it fits in I would have expected any proposals to come from the (acting) RSE.

While we believe that this is necessary, we have a concern that the incremental nature of these changes will result in will result in RFCs published in more than one XML format over time, as the adjustments are made.

We don't believe it's necessary to make that decision now, but we're sharing this information with the broader community for discussion.
