That is not what is reflected in the minutes or past e-mails.

I believe that materially misrepresents what has been stated. It is not
that either group formally requires that process. It's that, as
demonstrated with SC13, the process and expectations were violated, and it
would be poor form - enough to be reason to oppose a ballot that sought to
do it - were it to be repeated. We should learn from our mistakes, not seek
to justify or repeat them.

This is not correct. For the benefit of others:

   Addition of tag identifiers requires a public specification and
   Expert Review as set out in [RFC6195], Section 3.1.1.

   The tag space is designed to be sufficiently large that exhausting
   the possible tag space need not be a concern.  The scope of Expert
   Review SHOULD be limited to the question of whether the specification
   provided is sufficiently clear to permit implementation and to avoid
   unnecessary duplication of functionality.
