To be fair to Rob, this issue has been raised in the past. This was
discussed in the Validation WG as far back as London [1][2] as to the order
of operations. In that plan, Tim stated his intent to do exactly what Rob
suggested, and what the process would have been - to either publish an I-D
in the IETF or as an appendix in the BRs, to discuss with IANA for Expert
Review, and then adopt as permissible within the BRs. This ballot combines
those first and third steps and skips the second.

This omission seemed deliberate and intentional, as captured in the past
discussion [3], but perhaps there was some confusion in those statements.
To be clear, though, the ordering requirement that Rob's highlighting here
did continue to come up [4], as well as commitments to engage the IANA
