I'm afraid neither I nor Michael will be able to attend HCG this week as
we're deep in the throes of providing @alt guidance to the HTML Wg.

However, I am happy to work with you to insure you have the time you
need. We value your review. I will bring this up on our PF call--about
to begin.

This is just a quick response. I'll return with more substantive soon.
