Of course, issues are just a mechanism for the chairs to manage  
things, but I would suggest that issue-5 be closed based on the fact  
that the raiser has, in effect, withdrawn it (see one of jeremy's  
last email). Thus, there's no one left who owns that, and the  
phraseology is unfortunate. ISSUE-53, on the other hand, has an in  
group owner, has not been withdrawn, and would need an answer if we  
don't adopt at least 3.

Any of the technical issues in ISSUE-5 can be reraised in a better  
context.

(Just advice; not advocacy.)

Cheers,
Bijan.
