Ian,

Just a quick reply about the specification reaching last call.

There was a vote as per the official W3C process. It is noted in the 
minutes of October 21st. I don't think that suggesting there wasn't a 
vote is suitable.

Given the fact that SVG 1.2 Mobile was in last call, and for it to move 
forward requires SVG 1.2 Full to go to last call I thought it would be 
fairly obvious that the group would like it to move to last call in the 
near future.  On top of this we have had resolutions at the last face to 
face regarding moving to last call, many extra teleconferences and a 
high amount of email traffic concerning the issues surrounding getting 
the specification last call. I find it difficult to believe someone 
could be subscribed to the SVG member confidential mailing list and not 
notice that SVG 1.2 Full was nearing last call.

Thanks,
Craig
