There’s a note thanking “the shampoo manufacturers” right at the top of the acknowledgements section of the RFC-to-be 9470 draft. Originally it was merely a placeholder and lighthearted joke that I fully expected would be removed before final publication. But as the document moved into the last editorial phase of the publication process, I was preparing myself for a fight with the editors to keep it in. It had become more than a joke to me - it was now an homage to my friend and co-author of the document. The fight never materialized. But anticipating it gave me a place to channel my sadness and anger.
