At the November
EC closing meeting, I presented ec-18-0233,
Three Procedural Issues for Discussion." The
result was an Action Item: "Marks continue discussions noted in
ec-18-0233-00-00EC in rules meetings." In preparation, I would like
to raise each of the three issues on the reflector for your further
thoughts. This thread covers Issue #1.
Recently the EC had
a case in which an LMSC motion was debated on grounds that it had
not met all internal WG procedures, when the alleged failure
involved a WG policy more restrictive than the LMSC policy. I wonder:
*Is this valid
grounds for the LMSC to reject a proposal?
*Is the EC
responsible to police WG procedures beyond LMSC requirements?
*What are the
appeal issues if the EC ignored an internal WG restriction?
I don't have the
answers, but I think that the problem is interesting and would like
your views, either as opinions on how we should proceed or as facts
about how this general issue is considered elsewhere in IEEE.
