If you check with Janina and Foliot, they will confirm that they had 
asked that this not proceed until they felt the proposal was ready.  We 
recently got confirmation from them that they felt it was ready to proceed.

This was a topic of this week's telecon, where we laid out what the next 
steps will be:

Here is an example of such feedback, which was provided on one of the 
three longdesc proposals:

I will confirm that we have a first draft of feedback to a second of 
these proposals.  Unfortunately, this week Maciej has been under the 
weather.  Next week is a holiday week.  I can' provide a firm date as to 
when it will be sent to the list.

However, I will state that that review of of Jonas's proposal.  Your 
proposal, due to its length, may take a bit longer.
