Jim,

thanks for reminding us about how the Standards Track is defined.

I completely agree that BIND should be submitted as "Proposed".

Let me add that it is also implemented in Apache Slide, see 
<http://jakarta.apache.org/slide/howto-bind.html>.

I'd also like to point out that the damage done in terms of lost 
interoperability will be far greater if the spec continues to be just 
another Internet Draft. If Lisa indeed is right in that there are 
underspecified areas that need fixing (I disagree), this is something 
that would need to be addressed in a future revision.

Let me also point out that one of the most important things for this WG 
to work on should be RFC2518bis, essentially publishing all the 
clarifications and simplications the people over here have worked on for 
many years. The ongoing fighting about specs that are essentially 
finished provably distracts us from that.

Best regards, Julian
