I would like to thank again all the NIST people who have participated 
to this F2F. Thank you very much for the work done, for the report, and 
for the time spent with XQuery. Reading your comments it seems exactly 
the demonstration that the QA WG effort has been justified and the QA 
Framework as well as

a general effort to define a framework and tackle problems that 
everybody at W3C meet.

QA is not only a one time effort in each individual WG and it would be 
counter-effective to only act in each particular group when we can 
share the experience to everyone in a document.

Thousand of thanks again.

I seems indeed a good story and a good example. If I have time after 
SpecGL editing, just remind me to draft something. I'm pretty sure 
Lofton will not forget ;)
