definitely agree.  and one tries to do that.  

but it is not infrequent that a document has one or more issues
where couching them in terms which would not embarrass the authors
if made very publicly (and remember, we have authors from cultures
with varying sensitivity to such things) would tax the talents of
marcus aurelius let alone the overloaded engineers with which we
staff the iesg.  while this is not the majority case, it does mean
we should not make a hard and fast rule.
