Yes. Isn't this *always* the case for any document that is accepted? For
instance, the motivation of bringing this to the IETF was, in part, to
have more eyes evaluating the requirements.

And as noted before, an I-D does not need to be perfect to be accepted
by a wg. For instance, that's why it's a draft.

I personally believe that this is a reasonable approach for making
progress with this document. But this is different from what Lars was
arguing.

Anyway... time to move on, I think...
