I won't speak for others in the group, but I will say that what the 
chairs are focused on is on concrete proposals.  For issue 76, we have 
two at the moment.  If the owners of those proposals wish to revise 
those proposals based on input, great.  If others wish to bring forward 
new proposals, great.

I can say that discussions concerning reactions to what one person 
thinks another person may have in mind and may have said outside the 
context of a specific proposal are examples of things that I an *NOT* 
focused on at the moment.

With respect to issue 76, at the present time, I don't see unanimity in 
the working group, as such, I expect that we will need to follow the 
following process:
