I read that draft.  I also read 
https://twitter.com/mattblaze/status/438842253751365633  What is 
obvious is that there are organizations which have been spying on 
internet traffic.  The draft states a policy about considering that 
fact when developing technical standards.

It is a matter of what kind of security do you want.
