I've posted my thoughts on starting document shepherding at the time a document first starts its life in a working group, and on the tasks a shepherd might perform at each stage in the document's life. I intend to pursue having this published as an Informational document, not a BCP, reflecting my personal opinion. That said, I'm interested in comments, and might make changes accordingly.
