I do not agree. I think it is important that the FUD (as you describe  
it) is described as being FUD somewhere, and not just by silence  
"ignored" by the IETF. We are trying to in the documents address all  
different kind of issues and explain them. See RFC 4690, which in  
reality is bootstrap for the work that is done.
