The Advisory Board, based on input from various groups, put in a 4-week review process so that people could say "Yes, please do!" or "No, please don't for the following reasons..."

The steps are, roughly:

 1) Someone asks the Director to rescind.
 2) The Director announces a 4-week AC + public review
 3) The Director reviews the data and there's a decision either way.

The question is: who gets to ask the Director. I think the case would be made most strongly by a Working Group, especially if that Working Group is the one that published the spec to begin with.

Which is the best WG to make this request to the Director?
