That was then, this is now ...

I am not sure what Martin's current position is - merely that without a 
single implementation passing these two tests that the response given 
during LC is invalidated.

I have heard a variety of arguments from within HP and I am not trying to 
suggest that without systems passing these tests that we will oppose 
advancement.

Whatever, the WG should be trying to reach consensus as to why we should 
move forward despite not passing these tests - although I am happy to wait 
for a few more implementors' reports.
