Re: This is a transition request for WS-Addressing 1.0 Metadata to Candidate Recommendation.

Hi Bob,

Thank you for this request.  I've talked with Philippe about it, and you have most of the important stuff well-covered.

The one issue I see is that you have a comment from a reviewer that the WG did not accept [1].  However, that reviewer was only notified a couple of days ago of this fact.  The best practice (which we need to and will better document in the Process and supporting documents) is to give commenters time (with a clear deadline) to respond whether (a) they can live with the Group's decision, or (b) they feel the need to raise a formal objection [2] (e.g., flag for Director's attention) because they feel that the decision is bad for the Web (or for some other justified reason).  It would be best to give reviewers 4 or at least 2 weeks to respond (and let them know the deadline), and if there is no response, we might look more closely at the comment to see if we believe there are serious consequences in ignoring it (obviously, the WG has already decided there are no serious consequences, this would be a small, independent check). I've asked Philippe to see if he or you could get fe
edback from the reviewer quickly.

I'd hope that we can address this problem quickly, and approve the transition without a big call (e.g., Phillipe and I can talk, and record the result).  If you'd like a call or to participate with Philippe and me, let Philippe know.

Regards,

Steve
