Well, filling in some details then... In an IETF WG there are
typically one or two co-chairs and then one or two co-editors.
Typically the editors produce a sequence of drafts; they get to make
lots of judgment calls, particularly on wording, and to include their
own solutions to issues that haven't really been discussed yet. Then
when things get intense, the chairs eventually decree what the
consensus is and the editors do that. It's really helpful that at any
one time, there's one internet-draft which is the subject of
discussion. When I was chairing I used to demand that suggested
changes come with complete "camera-ready" deltas aimed at the current
draft. In the Atom WG we had a wiki which was mostly used to
construct these change proposals.
