  Personally I strongly disagree.  The IETF model is already beginning to
deteriorate in the rapid expansion of the Internet, and is in serious
jeopardy or becoming less and less relevant to the standards or
perceived standards of the internet today.  Their "Working Group"
approach has been beneficial in the past, but as time passes and the
expansion of the internet continues, their impact in their current
use of "Working group" formats, is beginning to falter as to their
influence on the protocol development and other areas of internet
structure.  Therefore a new format needs to be developed.
