I don't get it. One one hand, this note clearly marks the RFC as
"preliminary". OTOH, the status is marked as "frozen", meaning that it
can no longer change.

The only reason for the existence of this conflict is in the 1 October
deadline, and that eveything not frozen will be treated as retracted.

Isn't this whole business just plain silly?
