That's a fair point.

We've been asked to not raise this at the face-to-face, but Shane or I
would be happy to discuss it outside of the IG/WG meetings.

Spec Ops purpose is to provide editors, implementers, and support
personnel to the work we're doing here. Also, we haven't officially
launched yet, we do that on Monday, so there is nothing to talk about
yet. :)

Again - the org is meant to help, we've been asked to not talk about it
at the IG/WG meeting, but are happy to discuss it and how we're trying
to help at breaks/dinners.
