Here is my input on this question.

At the AB F2F in April, the AB just barely started to address some of 
the open questions about how this works.  There are still many open 
questions.  As a result, the AB has set aside 7.5 hours to grind through 
these issues in their F2F meeting in June.

Since the AB has already started to crunch through these issues, I think 
we should allow the AB to complete their first pass before this comes to 
the Process CG.

I don't believe that the level of issues that need to be addressed are 
sufficiently straightforward that we can get this into Process 2020.  
Remember that the target is to get Process 2020 into the hands of the AC 
by August.

When Mike says "defer", I hope that he does not mean to defer the work.  
I believe that can (and should) look at this in parallel with the other 
work going on.  I just don't think we can make it for Process 2020.

I've already done so for the issues noted inline in the document: https://nam06.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Fw3c%2Fw3process%2Flabels%2Fdirector-free&amp;data=02%7C01%7Cmichael.champion%40microsoft.com%7Cc9921b08a2054670f0c508d6dd2ea882%7C72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7C1%7C0%7C636939589800000507&amp;sdata=NmKTOGpEbsnfk73SVH1lEAsRzyHwcRn1lHM78q1xgUU%3D&amp;reserved=0 Please discusse there or open additional issues in https://nam06.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Fw3c%2Fw3process%2Fissues%2F&amp;data=02%7C01%7Cmichael.champion%40microsoft.com%7Cc9921b08a2054670f0c508d6dd2ea882%7C72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7C1%7C0%7C636939589800000507&amp;sdata=xbPQRC3LOO74WsrpqeZUBHz8YuLsZNaBNxHzX7BXMnM%3D&amp;reserved=0 and use "[director-free]" in the title as well as "director-free" as a label if you have the access-rights to put labels.

Feedback from the TAG is very welcome on that topic. Most of it is in https://nam06.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fw3c.github.io%2Fw3process%2Fdirector-free%2F%23TAG-appointments&amp;data=02%7C01%7Cmichael.champion%40microsoft.com%7Cc9921b08a2054670f0c508d6dd2ea882%7C72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7C1%7C0%7C636939589800000507&amp;sdata=qcszvN0pY1ugi%2FzLF%2BjAMQ%2BB6pXg2s%2BjkuthR0Pm%2BDo%3D&amp;reserved=0, although there are some smaller changes to neighboring sections to integrate it.
