Dear Noah,

Thank you for your note and the TAG's offer.

We will put this on the agenda for our next PING call (28 February, UTC 17). 
Please let us know if you would like to join the call so that we can make sure to send you the call details.

Christine and Tara

As the change in name suggests, the focus has also shifted.  The work was started by Dan Applequist and the idea was to discuss a single, focused item namely: send only what is requested and no more.

You can take it forward on your own, you can merge it with the document that Nick is working on or you can abandon it.  As far as the TAG is concerned, this is your decision to make. The TAG remains interested in this area and believes it to be important, but changes in our membership and focus make it impractical to carry forward work on our drafts in the foreseeable future.
