It was my understanding that the MLM BCP was intended to inform MLM operators of what they should do with DKIM-signed mail. Since that is the critical question, I would assert we need rough consensus on the answer to that question before issuing a WGLC on the document. I do not believe we have rough consensus on the answer to that question, i.e. reject vs. discard vs. bounce nor strip-and-sign, change from: and sign, or just simply re-sign as-is nor what to do about/with A-R. Correct me if I'm wrong about that, but I saw some of those issues raised just this week (and we were debating these same issues in May).

But there remains the issue of whether or not to split it into two or three documents covering specific topics (a non-DKIM MLM BCP, a DKIM-specific MLM BCP, and a DKIM value-add for MLMs informational), and whether or not to just drop the whole affair because there's not enough we can really say anyway.
