Further discussion on teleconference today:

- Significant EXI progress has continued to occur in 2016.
-OWP strategy (which was once speculative) now appears clearly achievable in coming year.
- Pursuit of XML Security strategy has become actionable thanks to Canonical EXI.
- Once we start measuring processor/network performance and power savings, then EXI support for WoT may become quite significant.
- More outreach is important so that broader consideration and participation can occur. W3C support can help.
- Issue 119, Publicizing EXI capabilities and opportunities https://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/exi/issues/119
- Agenda item for TPAC discussion next Tuesday.

Safe travels to Lisbon everyone!

all the best, Don
