Susanne, All,
I'd like to support your proposal. Looking at the deadline (January 8 2007)
it seems rather urgent to act. I volunteer to co-author and to take responsibility
for organisational issues, though it might be a good idea having you as the co-ordinator -
you've got my vote ;)
BTW: This might be an ideal place to promote XG or (follow-up WG) activities.
