Henri: can you verify that you are OK with Julian's updated proposal?

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2011Oct/0107.html

If not, can you either suggest changes to that proposal that would make 
it acceptable to you or update your proposal to indicate the rationale 
for the differences?

If you are OK with Julian's updated proposal, we will issue a call for 
consensus on it.  If you update your proposal, I will ask Julian the 
same questions I just asked you.
