That's great but are we getting the implementations aligned?

My understanding is that implementations are still differing from the 
spec and we weren't getting them to move. Reasons for that are differing 
between the vendors.

My expectation for the call would be that we understand why that's the 
case and see if we can get a common understanding on how we can move 
forward to achieve interop. For example, the idea of having a f2f 
meeting was floated before and more recently. I'd like to know if there 
is indeed such interest before asking folks to cross continents or oceans.
