Subsequent to that email, three action items were created, assigned, and 
subsequently closed.  There also was a W3C Workshop on the topic. That 
being said, I can't readily determine what the resolution of those 
actions were.

In any case, I moved the status of issue 7 back to open as it clearly is 
being actively pursued.  As soon as I can find a volunteer to drive this 
to resolution, an action item will be created.
