Yes, I follow the sig-policy mailing list closely, read all that before...
This still doesn't explain why this is a procedural matter.

Right, that's how everything begins...

So, please explain your sentence: "Some people are getting together to
discuss and decide what should be proper way to proceed."
And how can those people make a decision on the proper way to proceed?
Without quoting the APNIC website back to you, I'd imagine the procedure
now is that the proposal will be reworked so that it achieves consensus
at the next APNIC Member Meeting. This is definitely not a few people
getting together and making a decision.
> Now I am seeking members wisdom openly, will it do? :)
So your e-mail was really a call for volunteers to help reformulate the
proposal? Why didn't you say that at the start?
I volunteer to help, and I'm sure some of the other people who had good
input at the last APNIC meeting will also be delighted to help.
