It can't be helped; this is the IETF process.  In ISOland comments are sent
in privately and a disposition is published, but here the comments are
filed publicly, hashed out publicly, and a new draft is issued.  We are
only at FCD stage, after all.

    that says 'SELL HUNDRED THOUSAND SHARES IBM SHORT' (only 190 bits in
    5-bit Baudot code plus appropriate headers) is as good a legal document
    as any, even sans digital signature." --me
