I don't think these two answers quite address the concern, sorry: the
concern is to see a given WG allow one editor a permanent right to
publish his Editor's Draft as a WD. That's a de facto 'living WD' and
the WG is not in charge of the publication any more. All of that is
technically possible and I think it _will_ happen in the future if that
posssibility is open.

Sorry, but I am very, very far from excited by the potential
side-effect of that tool...
