We are "potentially interested" - i.e. we want to see how the spec comes  
out first. Given that this is in the scope of existing deliverables, and  
given taht Oracle are providing the resources to edit it, I see no reason  
to simply stand in their way. If there turns out not to be interst, then  
it will have a tough time getting to Rec. There are specs people claim to  
be very interested in, but are not prpared to put ay resources into moving  
forward - so clearly general surveys of interest are a poor way of  
understanding reality.
