Stéphane, that is probably a gross overstatement.

For others on this list: there was a strong and consistent pushback 
about that decisions by the IESG, and the IETF chair said that the IESG 
would look again at the decision.

Further, the reviled statement by the IESG was about a document that was 
explicitly not trying to be a standard. The discussion here is about 
something that is trying to be a standard. That is a huge difference.
