Speaking as someone with more than a passing familiarity with practical
political process, Paul's comments are correct.

Please, the interim-moderators should moderate, and the bylaws drafters
should draft, and they should be separate. It's the usual difference
between the Chair and the Editor (or Raporteur, or Recording Secretary).
I introduced this important division to the IETF many years ago....

Since they accepted the moderation function, they've disqualified
themselves from the drafting function.

And I especially like Paul's point that those serving as the moderators
be disqualified from serving in another postition for at least a year.
