[rpd] PDP-BIS Follow-up

PDP-BIS initiators have heard the concerns on anonymity for policy
proposals... They also have heard those who think the option is
desirable as pdp is more about solving INRs allocation and utilization
issues through ideas and opinions and not people.
Also a proposal adopted by the working group becomes a community
document and the working group decides and manage the lifecycle of the
proposal...Thus the move from "author" to "initiator"
We encourage more discussions on this topic and on other aspects of the
proposal as expressed in Dakar.

>> Also isn't it for the author(s) to address any issues or concerns raised in regards to a policy?
