As I said, if you feel the wg chairs is wrong in the determination of 
the rough consensus, then you should appeal. The process to do so is 
stated in RFC 2026 Section 6.5.

It is your choice not to appeal and it is within your rights.

But this does not means there is a problem with IETF nor could I agree 
with your conclusion. How could there be a problem if you have not put 
it to a test?
