I wish that I, as a spec editor, could edit the spec after my own 
preferences; the spec would have looked a lot different and we would 
have been done by now. ;) (stolen quote) But the editors team's task is 
to edit the document after group consensus; which isn't always easy when 
we can't reach consensus on stuff.

Personally I think the fact that we're not progressing and the way the 
API has been received, by the people who are intended to use it, clearly 
indicates that we're not doing it right. Less dependence on decisions 
from other groups and requirements coming from the top, instead of from 
what happens between UAs on the network, would also make our lives 
easier IMO.

I'm looking forward to see the API proposal and I'll be happy to comment 
on it.
