Choose Not to Put RFC-2188 on Standards Track

Communication Records

The IESG invited the RFC-2188 authors to put the ESRO Specification on the ``Standards Track.'' The authors declined.

The primary author of RFC-2188 has concluded that the IESG has become an instrument of big business and standards politicians. IESG suffers from a strong case of Not-Invented-Here syndrome.

For example, the negative IESG note in the original HTTP specs and the success of HTTP demonstrated IESG's attitude and its eventual relevance.
