Thanks Mike!

Great to get this moving toward Rec. Do you or anyone else in the group
want to write a blog post to tell the world about mixed content?

We also have the opportunity to do some more publicity when the spec
goes to Recommendation. Would any orgs be interested in giving
testimonials (quotes for a press release) on the subject?

I expect we'd be looking at publishing MIX as Recommendation in January
2020 (after AC review).
