Not sure why you say the WG secretary is an AD appointment. It is
clearly a WG function that falls under the responsibily of the
chairs. And RFC 2418 describes the WG Secretary role as as subsection
of 6.1 (WG Chair) saying:

>    The Chair has the responsibility and the authority to make decisions,
>    on behalf of the working group, regarding all matters of working

While it would be fine (as appropriate) to consult with the ADs on
such (or any) potential appointment, this seems to be a WG chair
responsibility.

In any case, congratulations Jon!

Thomas
