This is in fact one of two items for the next face to face. The other,  
hopefully secondary, is cleaning up any outstanding issues in XHR1 (since  
XHR2 depends on that in any case, and since there are several  
critical-path folks who are the same person).

Of course, the meeting relies on timely input. We are waiting on Microsoft  
to raise specific issues so we can analyse them and put them on the  
agenda. I am hopeful that having scheduled a face to face meeting a couple  
of months away isn't taken as a reason not to continue the more aggressive  
process that would have been required to justify holding telecons, as  
Microsoft originally requested - there is certainly no barrier to holding  
telconferences before the meeting.

cheers
