Marcos, you are suggesting that we have given the shelving enough time and I agree with that assessment.

In general publishing work as a Note that is not going further on the Recommendation Track is a good idea, as long as that does not misinform or confuse people. Note material can always be resumed on the Rec track if there is interest and the WG is still operating.

However, I do not think we should publish anything as a Note if we think it is so incomplete or incorrect that it would cause harm, despite any disclaimer.

Thus I suggest we have a CfC for the Note publication, so WG members can look at and review the drafts and indicate any concern regarding publication as Notes of any of them. I'll send a CfC today.

Anssi, would you be able to help with preparing Note drafts, including validation, link check and pubrules? I can help out with the status section, I don't think the current shelving warning is appropriate - instead we need appropriate language in the status section.


regards, Frederick
