Maybe I should clarify.  If the working group sees itself as updating
2616, the working group can get into a rathole discussing changes to the
text even if the people participating in that discussion can't actually
change the text and submit a revised internet-draft for that text. But
if it's clear up front that the WG is not chartered to actually change
the document text, the participants are more likely to confine their
discussion to descriptions of specific problems and fixes.

(there's a reason we describe the job of being a WG chair (and for that
matter, an AD) as "herding cats".)
