This is absolutely right.  The most important thing is to ensure we make
steady progress on the protocol standard itself -- whether this is done in a
working group, or by a group of individuals is less important.  I have a
slight preference for having the work performed in a working group, since I
think that WG products carry a little more respect within the IETF. But,
since most of the work here was done within a working group, this doesn't
affect DASL as much.

I think having a chair would be a good thing if the chair was energetic,
pushed things forward, and even did some publicizing of the protocol. If
such a person doesn't emerge, then finishing the protocol as an individual
submission would be fine too.
