Because that's where implementers look for such documents.

Because there are implementers who are active in the IETF who might have valuable opinions on what the doc might say that would make it more valuable.

It does not. So what? Did you somehow miss all the operational documents that the IETF helps produce?

There are two implementations. Are you saying there should be no more? Or, if there are more, that the implementers should have no clue about what earlier implementers thought about?

Nor did anyone say it had to.

Please consider putting your straw man back on the shelf, and maybe help people who want to work cooperatively do so.
