Hi all,

thank you for your good feedback. I decided to postpone the publication. I
should have explained the W3C process here more clearly: if a WG is
proposing more than editorial edits (like deleting data categories from the
draft) after a call for consensus, we cannot publish - the W3C mgmt won't
allow this.

So here is the new plan: today I will
- add Moritz' figure

- leaving undecided data cats in and say in the draft: all data categories
are only proposals and not stable. Important is to get feedback along the
lines of

- move the end-to-end use cases, as Dave said (thanks for the reminder)

- make my edits, mentioned in the previous mail in this thread

- add a "status of the document section" (this is necessary for publication)

After Dave's Thursday night edits, I will make the HTML conversion and send
another call for consensus on Friday morning, if there is no request for
changes (except spelling etc.) by Tuesday, I will request publication which
should be done around Thursday - Friday - so at least we have a small
overlap with LREC :)

> - convert the document to HTML and send the so-called "transition request".
