I respect the right of anyone to oppose a policy for any reason (or no
reason at all) but recent accusations of failed process etc. are
wholly unsupportable.

The AC did nothing unusual with regard to 2011-1, to wit: take input
from the Community, at two public policy meetings, do word-smithing
and polishing for a policy proposal, and move it forward.  That's
something that we do _constantly_.  2011-1 has not morphed in broad
intent over time, varying only in minutiae to make it compatible with
the will of the Community.

Please take a moment to read various iterations of 2011-1 side by
side.  The version that was sent to last call was *anything but* a
"new" draft policy.
