FYI, my understanding (and I'm sure Ron will correct me if I'm wrong) is
that what's actually happening is that the IESG is pushing that draft
forward knowing that it's going to be appealed. The appeal process will
then sort itself out, and we'll have a result.

The fact that one person can stall the end result through the appeals
process is both a strength and occasionally a burden of the way the IETF
does its work.
