The PER request is for XML Base, but the email exchange is mostly
about XLink.

Half the exchange is about timing of RFCs, and the rest is about
whether SVG should reference LEIRIs or IRIs.  But that's a discussion
for SVG.

None of the exchange is about the XML Base PER.

In other words, none of the exchange actually bears on the question of
whether XML Base should go to PER -- rather it's discussion stimulated
by people having their attention called to the new draft RFC.

I still don't think we need a call, and that we can go ahead with
publication on 20 March.  In other words, I think if we _had_ a call,
we would decide that none of the email exchange actually addressed the
entry conditions to PER, and so we would decide to go ahead.  It would
just slow us down to the point where we miss the publication
moratorium.
