The co-chairs have discussed this and agreed to not push this bug into 
VERIFY state until the end of this calendar year.  The operative 
deadlines therefore are as follows:

We will need an issue to be raised by January 14, 2012, and a Change 
Proposal to be completed by Feb 11, 2012.  Of course, you are welcome to 
either close the bug or raise an issue earlier before then.

Just to be clear: consequences of missing these dates will be that the 
bug will likely be marked as POSTPONED.  Furthermore, the bugs 
themselves are to remain in a RESOLVED state until or unless you have 
specific actionable information that you would like the _editor_ to 
evaluate.  If you simply have information that you would like the entire 
Working Group to evaluate (or even a separate Task Force to work with), 
then the status of the bug is to remain as RESOLVED (i.e., not on the 
editor's queue)

Does this work for you?

- Sam Ruby

P.S.  Even though it wasn't explicitly mentioned, we are willing to do 
the same for bug 13101.
