Hi Eran:
Please keep us informed of new versions of the three drafts. This will 
keep the momentum going!
I think Metadata access is an important issue for the TAG to consider.
Please also let us know if there are architectural issues that you want 
the TAG's opinion on.
Sorry for the late response.
All the best, Ashok
