Your position seems to be that there should not be a heartbeat until 
there is technical consensus on how this document should change based on 
an expected Director's decision.  My experience is that consensus in 
this area is a lengthy process.

My position is that technical consensus is not required to publish a 
heartbeat, and that a note of the known issues remaining to be worked is 

We seem to agree about this for all other technical issues.
