No, I am am persuing an alternative appeal route called the market.

Given that the individual who was responsible for the conduct being appealed
is on the IESG and is unlikely to recuse himself of the appeals process I
would be a complete fool to bring an appeal to that forum, thereby endorsing
a closed process as the final arbiter.

If the IESG is interested in a spec that can actually be deployed it will
start the appeals process of its own accord or return the current drafts to
the WG because the operators of the largest zones have identified serious
technical flaws that prevent deployment.
