Thisis effectively in a "future plans" session (the final session of the  
meeting). But it is expected that most of them will reach last call quite  
soon - for a couple of them the editor already thinks they are ready (but  
we will put it to the group first...).

The database (or offline storeage or whatever you want to call it) specs  
will be discussed as a block in the existing agenda.

Presumably. There will in any case be a call for consensus before that  
happens - which is a trigger to start discussion if you think it is  
warranted. (I can't force the group to discuss things - that's up to the  
individual members of the group).
