You don't need a decision from the Chairs. Just go ahead and start  
writing. Anyone can create an Editor's Draft without the need for  
anyone's approval. If you need help with the mechanics of CVS access,  
Mike Smith can help you out.

Once you have something ready for First Public Working Draft, then you  
can propose it to the group.

Maciej
