The message in [1] (member only) discusses a pending Directors 
decision and implementation date with respect to the process 
document.  This has only been announced member only, as far as I 
know, so please don't discuss details on this public list.

However, the following is public knowledge - there is a proposed 
change to the process to create something called a "Working Group 
Note" -- the implication is that this should be the terminal state of 
a Working Draft that is not expected to be reissued nor to become a 
recommendation document.  I have been asked by a member of the W3C 
Advisory Board whether we think any of our documents would be likely 
to become a Working Group Note if this change is made.

I believe that the XML presentation syntax would be an ideal 
candidate for this, do you folks agree?  I'm also happy to entertain 
discussion as to whether any of our other documents should become 
WGNs instead of moving to Rec, however since the others are all at 
LC, I'm not sure I see a driving need.

So, I'd like to ask the WG if, assumign this change gets made,
   (i) we would be likely to move XML Presentation to WGN, and
   (ii) we would be unlikely to move any of our other 6 documents to 
WGN instead of staying on the recommendation track.

  thanks
  JH
