I disagree.  If the AD asserts a technical error and the WG
consensus disagrees with the AD, it's still up to the IESG as a whole to
decide whether the document meets the requirement for standardization -
with or without the change suggested by the AD.  WG consensus alone is
insufficient to have a document approved for the standards track - it
requires IESG approval also, and WG consensus does not compel the IESG
to approve the document.
