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.
