Community Group members:  this is a re-send because I forgot that W3C does not handle large attachments well.

(this is a link to the Eckersley-Lowenthal-Mayer proposal referred to below)

(this is a link to a 28-page PDF that merged all 5 of the proposals that were reviewed at the W3C meeting in DC)

Apologies to Jeff Chester for not saying that this request for a meeting was at his urging.  Jeff has put a great deal of energy and effort into the W3C process.

We hope you will be able to make the call.

I will send call-in information later.

Lee
