Ahh, I thought you were asking for comments on the technical side of  
this, not about how to get the work done.  I suggest we do it as a  
subgroup (task force) as we've done for the user-facing documents - I  
volunteer to be on such a task force and reiterate my offer, made  
since the beginning of the WG, to be one of the editors of the WG  
document(s) on this.
