I agree with Anne's assessment w.r.t. Atom.

A bigger issue, one that I didn't capture but have since rectified is 
that it was perceived to be a big undertaking, and that Martin Dürst may 
not be available to help.

If somebody were able to convince Martin of the need for a revision, or 
were to step forward and credibly indicate that they were willing to 
take on the entire job, I'm confident that the approach advocated by 
Larry would be adopted.

At the moment, DanC is focusing on a task that he feels that he can 
handle, namely the definition of a new concept that is layered on top of 
the IRI specification.

DanC, Larry, or anybody else in the room is welcome to revise or extend 
my minutes.
