Why don't you start by simpling stating what you want to have happen?

So far I've seen a number of messages complaining about the IETF (btw,  
if you like complaining about the IETF, go to the meetings, there is  
significant time set aside for that there) but not a single technical  
request, remark or observation.

The IETF works by rough consensus. That means if people disagree,  
nothing much happens. That is annoying. But a lot of good work gets  
done when people agree, and a lot of the time good technical arguments  

Like I said, the IETF really wants input from operators. Why not start  
by giving some?
