**

*The following numeric results are tabulated from the discussion on the
QUIC consensus call:*

*

  *

    21 participants from 11 organizations participated in the thread

  *

    10 spoke in favor of adoption, 8 spoke against. 3 did not have a
    clear position, or didn’t want to be counted

  *

    5 claimed to speak for their organizations; 4 of those spoke in
    favor, 1 (Mozilla) spoke against

  *

    Of the 8 participants speaking against adoption, 4 were from
    Mozilla; 4 were not


Arguments raised include:

  *

    It is inappropriate to define a QUIC API at this time

      o

        In particular, the QUIC datagram feature and options for
        unreliable data are still in flux

  *

    Many of the features argued as QUIC improvements could be added to SCTP

  *

    One should drive the API design by user requirements, not protocol
    features


Based on these results, the chairs conclude that there is no consensus
to adopt, and recommends to the author that he work with W3C Staff (Dom
has volunteered to help) to identify the right group to bring up  this
work in the context of a client-server API.

**Harald, for the chairs**
