Re: [802SEC] +++ LMSC P&P Revision Ballot +++ Miscellaneous Issues


The P&P requires that proposed changes shall include:
a) The purpose, objective, or problem the proposed change is intended to address.
b) The specific text of the proposed change and the rationale for the chosen text.

The Purpose ("Clarify miscellaneous LMSC editorial procedures and process") is not complete or useful. It's also inaccurate, since proposed non-editorial changes are buried within the editorial changes.

The rationale is not provided for all substantive changes. Only a single, generic Rationale statement is supplied; it is incomplete and inaccurate. For example, it talks about "Sessions and meetings" and "WG membership rules," but no changes to either of these areas is proposed.

The P&P requirements are there for a reason.
