  • Significant technical concern with the viability of the work
  • Significant procedural concern with the ability to complete the work effectively due to low energy levels, contentiousness, overly large scope of the work, etc.
  • Lack of technical clarity on what the work and deliverables will actually consist of
  • Lack of scope for what is clearly in-bounds versus things that should be explicitly forbidden
  • Overlap or interference with other work inside or outside the IETF, which would lead to clear harm or significant operational issues

  • Inappropriate phasing of the work that may lead to inadequate focus or end-runs of consensus process.
  • Out of scope for the IETF
