I may be confused, yes. But I understand that a heartbeat is to show
advance. I feel we shouldn't show
advance if we haven't achieved consensus on the draft. I, personally,
humbly, declaring my ignorance
about burocracy matters reject the draft as it is now.

I think people don't expect a lot of work done during summer, so we can
wait one month or even two
before publishing the next heartbeat.
