Thanks for this Dom!

Guys - please take a look at Domıs suggestion below and let the list know
your thoughts (thanks to Kawada san for already doing this!). We will be
having some discussions about this on the list and on the calls.

>From a GSMA perspective I love the idea! It is a great initiative to ease
network traffic, as well as provide more insight into how to react to
certain network situations for developers.

Thanks all!
