"However, as outlined already last year, we think the WG should focus on

Discussing different use cases that are hard to do with the present API,
and discussing approaches and ideas that would make those use cases easier
to achieve, would probably be an excellent exercise in distilling out the
main approach for a new API (or future API extensions). We welcome such

I interpreted that as "while finishing 1.0, gather requirements and uses
cases for 2.0".  But more recently, he wrote:

"And we have invited to a discussion on v2 of the API, but
proposed to start from use-cases. I don't think that is unreasonable,
but also hear that use-cases is not the right starting point.

If you have ideas or proposals (being API issues, API proposals,
procedures, use-cases, etc.), please submit them to the list (regardless
of if they are for v1, v2 or vN) - I'm pretty sure that good ideas will
be picked up. Perhaps someone has a really clever idea on a mod of the
current API that would be seen as an improvement by most?"

So, perhaps the discussion is more open than I thought.  Apparently you can
even start proposing ideas for 3.0 :).
