It did garner some review on the CFRG mailing list, but not to what I normally think of as comprehensive and resolving all comments.

The pre-5869 draft was AD sponsored by Tim Polk.  The IETF LC can be found here:

https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/msg/ietf-announce/8rYOi-6zUEljAX4XprWbjP7on0s

We can refer to it normatively if we want to, we just have to make sure the DOWNREF is explicitly cited, as per RFC 3647.
