Each working group will probably want to deal with marshelling their
forces to deal with RFCs in their own way.  If the WG leader wants to
handle it, fine.  This all falls under the category of "find someone
who does".

Ladies and gentlemen, do not be alarmed.  Please remain perfectly
still.  What you are about to see is real.  The performers are not
grinning scarecrows sent here to torture and manipulate you.
