thank you all for the feedback over the last few days.

It seems like we have broad consensus to refer to NISTIR 8366 (https://doi.org/10.6028/NIST.IR.8366) to provide guidance to IETF contributors on using inclusive terminology, in lieu of documenting our own guidance.

I'm therefore planning to do the following:

(1) abandon the chartering of the proposed TERM WG

(2) suggest to the IESG to recommend NISTIR 8366 as guidance
    to contributors to the IETF

(3) suggest to the RFC Editor to recommend NISTIR 8366 as guidance
    to authors of I-Ds and RFCs
