I would like to express my extreme dissatisfaction with the WG chairs 
in handling the BIND spec. I perceive your behaviour during the last 
year as that of a total roadblock, not constructive and only paying lip 
service to installing and following any process which might bring 
progress to WebDAV and its goals.

If there is any way to bring this spec to "proposed" under the current 
chairs, it eludes me.
