That would be nice, but we have shown very little progress toward
this, and we clearly don't have the energy to bring it to conclusion.
Or the time; I'd like to have a draft report to the TAG before the
January F2F.

And I'm not sure it's an agreed goal, or even possible. We have never
really had a good understanding, much less consensus, of what
analytical method to apply, or of the tradeoff between recording what
the participants in HTTP can be actually held accountable for, vs.
recording what we would *like* to hold them accountable for (or can be
held accountable for, subject to some additional commitment). This
difficulty is one thing I'd like to document.

I think we just have to say what we have done up to now. It may have
to just be a bunch of individual perspectives. We can talk tomorrow
about how to detect agreement and frame the disagreements.

If you'd like to volunteer to do something for tomorrow, it might be
useful to have an organized list of all of the documents, web pages,
etc., ideally with some of the email threads as well, so we know what
the inputs are. With metadata (date, author) preferably. I think most
are listed in the wiki although I know I've neglected to keep the wiki
up to date.
