Which is what makes it absurd to suggest that the IESG can be left to manage
the reform process.  All we'd get are a bunch of new hurdles for WGs to jump
through,  so as  to  make it  even  harder to  oppose  the IESG's  political
objectives. I.e., things would get worse, rather than better. 

So I think this is a poor case for the "let's get some code fielded and then
get the IETF to rubber stamp it" technique ;-)
