On the other hand, suggesting the WG take an editor without a proven  
track record risks the the WG investing a huge amount of time in an  
exercise that fails. I think it's more important to protect the spec  
development as a whole against waste than it is to protect aspiring  
individuals against waste, even though that's not nice from the point  
of view of the individuals.
