I think authors being more aware of issues than others is exactly why  
it shouldn't be only authors suggesting a move from draft to spec.   
Open issues should be clearly documented in the wiki where everyone  
can help resolve them.  If they're not clearly documented, the  
Authors who know about the issues aren't likely to put them in the  
wiki until the need becomes clear with someone unfamiliar saying "I  
don't see any open issues. Time to move to spec?"  It seems the  
process is working here exactly as intended, so I don't see why we  
would change it.
