So, you seem to suggest that the guidelines that the IESG "have
used in the past" was to have no more than 3 to 4 authors.
Out of the 47 recently published RFCs (rfc3196 to rfc3275) 2 were
published with 5 authors, 2 with 6 authors, 5 with 7 authors, 1
with 10 authors, and 1 with 14 authors. That is, about 1/4 of the
recently published RFCs seem to violate the guidelines.
With this in mind could you be a bit more precise on the guidelines
that have been applied when publishing these RFCs.
