i think the idea of forming another working group, will lead to bad
consequences, like separating and dividing a group which is at the
beginning. I believe, we should try as hard as we can to find a reasonable
solution, as otherwise this effort will be doomed at the very beginning.
I do not think that anyone wishes to create one more alternative standard,
otherwise we will end with many standards and no one to support them.
