Ok, I'm confused -- the process goes that (for WG documents) the WG
chairs evaluate and declare consensus, and then send the document to
the responsible AD. The responsible AD reviews the document and the
process, and if they deem it appropriate, sends to to the IESG for
"ask while asking the IESG review on
draft-ietf-spring-srv6-network-programming" implies that the chairs
would have declared consensus and believe it is ready to publish, and
that the responsible AD agrees it is ready to progress - is this what
you are proposing / saying?

Or were you meaning that you would just ask the IESG to review? Or
that you would state that you cannot declare consensus, and are
gridlocked, and ask the IESG to help? Or something else?

I'm genuinely confused what you mean by the above, and am just trying
to figure out what you are proposing.

I don't think the execution is relevant when it was obviously a bad
idea in the first place.
This is like putting rabid weasels in your pants, and later expressing
regret at having chosen those particular rabid weasels and that pair
of pants.
