Ok, on the first, this seems fine but does it meet the evolutionary process 
for a version 3???.  On the second, The w3c has produced a minority report. 
I have not yet read it but will we be commenting on the nprm and since we 
are world body, shouldn't there be harmonization the other way if there is a 
conflict unless it is over standards vs guidelines?  On the third, I guess I 
need to understand the process a little better but it seems that in the 
past, it was possible to provide comments through the voting process.

harmonization issues as they arise. </jim>
