I am afraid that I remain unconvinced that there
/was/ any "decision to publish"; there was a
"plan to publish", but from my reading of the
messages that followed Chris's announcement of
this plan, this was still under debate.  The last
message was sent at the end of January, and by
that time I do not think that a consensus (or
even near-consensus) had emerged.  I believe
that publication was premature, and that this
WG should have been consulted again before
publication went ahead.
