Key historical dates [with selected message numbers]:
   09-29 bug opened

   03-19 Last post on this issue on the mailing list [0405]
   03-27 Survey posted

We also review all of the key dates each telecon, and both the agenda 
and minutes are posted.

The chairs will discuss this request between 4pm and 5pm Eastern today, 
but I will share the position that I am going into that discussion with: 
I am absolutely opposed to any delay based on the mere possibility of a 
Change Proposal at some point in the future.

We have 25 open issues to close (which means "edits applied to the 
draft") between now an April 22nd[1].

If something is produced in the next 36 hours I would support adding it 
to the existing survey and extending the closure date by a corresponding 
amount of time.

Meanwhile, assume that everything that has yet to go to a survey will do 
so by April 1st.
