I'm puzzled that you, of all, are puzzled. :)

How is this *not* "taking public policy into account when developing
technical standards":
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-farrell-perpass-attack/ ?

(The fact that the document goes to great lengths to not take a position on
the merits of what it defines "pervasive monitoring" does not, in my view,
change the fact that such "pervasive monitoring" is, obviously, an issue of
public policy of great importance, whatever opinion one might have about

How is this *not* taking steps to facilitate a structured conversation
(using more than a mailing list) about technical issues with public policy
implications: https://trac.tools.ietf.org/group/ppm-legacy-review/ ?

By the way, whether this is done with the "broad involvement of all
stakeholders" is a different issue. I don't believe in this or other cases
it has been or is currently the case, but I know well the opinion of most
IETF participants as we discussed at length in the IAB InternetGovTech
mailing list, where I still owe an answer or two to some people.




I speak only for myself. Sometimes I do not even agree with myself. Keep it
in mind.
