Subject: Re: agenda, charter, etc.

Larry,

I don't seem to have a copy of a proposed (even unrevised) agenda for
the URI mtg, but I hope we can find a little time to talk about the
issues I was trying to address in my internet drafts on what aspects
of urn resolution should and should not be standardized and how to
deal with multiplicity of resolution services.

I know you sent me a private note suggesting that that note ended just
when it was getting going.  I didn't want to take a position on how it
should be done in that note, in order to leave the door open for
alternative suggestions.  Of course I have a model of how it should be
done and I would certainly like to propose it, but in the meantime, we
should at least have the meta-level discussion about what should and
should not be standardized.  Once we've done that, we will have
another point to make in the charter and schedule of tasks for the WG.

Given that I expecting to be writing a paper for elsewhere until I get
on the plane, I'm definitely not up for a long talk that needs lots of
preparation, but I think the agenda for the mtg should have this topic
on it, and I'd be happy to introduce it BRIEFLY.

Again, I don't remember whether this is on the agenda, but perhaps we
should just hold off unless someone has something particularly
insightful to say about it, but there is definitely the issues of
authentication and security.  I will say here (so it's more public)
that I will make my best effort to write an internet draft on this
subject prior to the December mtg, so we might be able to use that as
the basis for a discussion on that topic.
