Summary: This draft is basically ready for publication as an Informational RFC, but has nits that should be considered before publication.


This document describes a process that seems to touch on points in 2026 and other BCPs.  It does not clearly identify whether this process is _different_, or whether the intent is to simply explain the application of the BCPs with codec-specific elaboration.  It would appear that it's the latter, but I'm far from expert in these matters.  A short statement identifying the which choice, and the intent of any differences (if any) would be helpful.

Nitty nits:
Missing citation for ITU-R BS.1534 (MUSHRA)
Missing expansion on first use of several acronyms (e.g., PESQ, PEAQ, and SegSNR)
