I don't either. It was just an idea.....

I'm not going to discard anything out of hand. There are bits and
pieces of each one that are appropriate. It was just an idea for
allowing more meetings without the criticizm of being unfocused.

I'm sure IPng would have had the same criticism if they had tried
to do everything in one working group. Instead they spawned off 
several...

Just a suggestion. If noone else pipes up consider it dead and buried.
