As much as I hate replying to my own postings?

The motions mentioned above are now two weeks old. ...

It would seem that all pretense at process has fallen by the wayside as 
far as the WG chairs are concerned. Nevertheless, I'll endeavor to make 
good in spirit. ...

Hearing no dissention for two weeks since motions were made to close the 
open issues, and similar silence fro the WG chairs, I am appointing 
myself the 'Bugzilla Killa' - you will see some emails from Bugzilla 
over the next few minutes as I close the open issues.

Apologies for stepping all over the process, especially to those who 
left it on the floor to be stepped on. ...
