Undoubtedly. But a closely related problem is how to get the IETF at
large to put effort into work at the "principles" level. My efforts
last year to get input for a revision of RFC 1958 were an exercise
in frustration. 

This was very different from 1996, when we got lots of input
for the original version of RFC 1958.
