Thank you Ashok. I did note Henry's suggestion in my email, and I think it
may be a good one in the long term, but I would think we we want to start
with things like the legal review that was suggested by Dan. If we do
decide to choose a very visible public forum, then I think it's important
that whatever we do be very carefully considered, and very well reviewed in
advance.

Yes, I think that's the right priority, and I tried to acknowledge it in my 
email of last night [1]. We do then need to find other TAG members who can 
move this forward. Ashok has been kind enough to offer at least editorial 
help, but I think we need to be prepared for careful evaluation/rework of 
the the scope and content as well as the writing.
