The questions are really whether
a) we are going to expand the scope of the working group beyond
what is required to solve the actual requirement of the working group, and
b) whether the IETF is now going to claim parental concerns for
people's behaviors, protecting them from their deficiencies -- while
remembering that we are exceeding poor at that task.

Claims about the costs are based on behavioral assumptions that have no
empirical basis. Existence proofs, yes. Proof of widespread danger, no.

Adding language about implications of errors is typically a Good Thing, as
long as a) the language is readily produced, and b) there is not so much of
it that it gets in the way of the technical specification.
