Severe Criticism of WGIG Unleashed

Federico Heinz, writing on the CS-Plenary list states:

Hard as I try, I can't figure out why anybody would endorse and commend the multi-stakeholder approach taken at WGIG, when WGIG's output has been, in one admittedly rude word, crap. I have not read all of the papers, but I have read a statistically representative sample of it, and their quality can only be described as abysmal, they are full of factual and conceptual errors, the comment process was fundamentally flawed (10 days to comment on a large number of papers that had taken months to draft), and no formal correction or discussion process outside the group of "experts". This is an unmitigated disaster, why would we want to endorse it?
