Hi all,

Adding my 2 eurocents (fwiw, just before the telecon), the procedure 
proposed by Alan and Ian seems well balanced, and I support it.

Bijan's proposal, definitely has its merits as well, and I agree with 
the motivation. However I do not share the sense of urgency, and in 
particular with respect to the remark of Jeremy on Bijan's point B:

Jeremy Carroll wrote:

As a relative newcomer to the whole WG-thing, I must say I am somewhat 
taken aback by the healthy enthusiasm/passion of the discussion until 
now  (and for this I +1 Bijan's editorial): it is hard to jump in when 
you feel you are a) still busy catching-up and b) not an author of the 
original submission (too many sensitive toes to trod on).

In short, I agree that we need to have these WD's out preferably before 
the F2F, but I oppose putting too much pressure on the WG.

A sidenote is that if (indeed) the specs/WD will be created en plain 
public on the wiki, some degree of public exposure is already built in.
