I apologize if my comment made it sound like "we'll discuss it, not make
any changes, and I'll pass along a report." I very much would like to make
any clarifications needed in the I-D, even if that means another round or
two of the I-D. Certainly, if John had some misunderstandings about what
the mailserver URL scheme is meant to do (as I believe that he did), other
people will have the same misunderstandings and this is a very good time to
clarify what we have come to consensus on.
