There was another F2F meeting in May 2017 where some ideas about redesign were mentioned and decided upon. I heard about the meeting a few hours earlier and participated via video call, but did not have time to prepare me for much of that.

I agree that they should be 2-dimensional, but this has to be done in a way that does not create problems when stacking, and the reason that the draft text has not been updated is not that I have been lazy, but that the company which hired me to do work on the spec initially decided to prioritize differently and not have me work on the spec draft any more after FPWD. It is probably not quite correct that I am listed as the sole editor of that spec at this stage.

Would you want to be listed as a former editor instead, to avoid giving the wrong impression about why you have not been active recently?

For what it is worth, I was involved in the May 2017 discussions, and still would like to follow up on these changes, but I am not funded for this either, so I do not expect to be able to prioritize this any time soon.

If it makes people feel better to have an inactive editor rather than no editor at all, I don't mind being added there as this is a spec I am interested in, but I cannot commit to spending time on it.
