Thank you for pointing this out to me, Pat.
That it's in the rules doesn't make it right. Executive
committee is the term used by other sponsors when a
subset of the sponsor is involved. In our case, executive
committee should mean the officers of the sponsor.
It's no big deal - I just wondered if there was a historic

LMSC stands for LAN/MAN Standards Committee. If we called
ourselves Sponsor Committee and the acronym SC was used, it
would be ambiguous whether it stood for Sponsor Committee or
Executive Committee. There are no occurrences of "Sponsor
Committee" in the LMSC P&P and the LMSC OM. The baseline
sponsor P&P doesn't have the term Sponsor Committee
either. It does mention Executive Committees as one of the
types of administrative subgroups a sponsor might have.
