Really?  There are hundreds of IETF protocols (and there can be hundreds of
Internet Drafts proposing changes or enhancements coming up for consideration
to become an RFC at any given IETF meeting...)

Decisions on all of those documents are "governance functions"?  That is 
beyond believability, and hence I ask what criteria or circumstances that
you believe would make a decision on a document an act of  "governance"...


Disclaimers: My views alone.
