I think 1 and 2.  I'm not sure that it belongs in the SpecGL - I need to
think about that some more.  Also, I would like it to be circulated to the
IG - thus, giving a wider audience a chance to look at it.  Then, if someone
has a problem with the classification, they have a chance to comment on it -
whether they comment or not.

QAWG -- other opinions solicited...

I initially agreed with Dave's suggestion, but have re-thought it.

I'm concerned that we not tie the (probably unreviewed) table to a WD which
does now have QAWG consensus for publication.  I said "unreviewed", because
there were no replies to Dom's original circulation -- unless everyone
agreed 100%!  For this reason, I'm a bit nervous that we link it from the
published WD, despite Dom's disclaimer at the start.

Options:

0.) As Dave suggested.

1.) SpecExtech:  put it there, and put a note in SpecGL with a forward
reference to (future) Extech .

2.) Dom submit it to IG list for discussion after SpecGL publication (it
would be a good conversation starter!).

3.) SpecGL:  put a note in GL2, noting the existence of an an individual
contribution/exercise, pointing to Dom's archived email message (which
links to the table); maybe also strengthen disclaimer at start of Dom's
document.

4.) 1+2

5.) 2+3
