Thanks; this is helpful!

Regarding the following conclusion in your attachment:

[[
We believe that the convergence of the two approaches
in a future W3C standard is feasible, taking the best
of both proposals, complementing the genericity advocated
by Bondi with the versatility (synchronous, asynchronous,
one shot) offered by Nokia's.
]]

Indeed my expectation is the group will use inputs from all members  
of the group when creating the agreed specifications.

This is good to hear Jose.
