The process in (2) represents direction and intent. It’s just as dangerous to call an I-D "a standard" as it is to discount a stable WG draft in active development as “just another I-D”. There’s a wide gradient here applied by the status and group management in (2), and I argue that carries weight. There’s also a lot of context that isn’t formally captured, such as active development on the text itself. This is part of what the I-D expiration is meant to capture, but as we can see here, it’s highly imperfect.

+1 (definitely)
