Do you mean the entire morning? We're already exceeding our chartered  
deadlines, and plan to go to Last Call at that meeting or shortly  
afterwards. As such, being able to dedicate as much time as possible to  
issue resolution at this F2F is extremely important to the WG (which is  
why we're also meeting on Sunday).

So, my preference would be to have a one- or two-hour session on Monday  
morning to briefly introduce our work to the TAG and then discuss  
specific issues. If further discussion is required, we could schedule a  
teleconference for after the TP, so as not to put our chartered  
deadlines at risk.

The WG does not have a Use Cases document as part of its deliverables,  
and is early in the process of collecting test cases for CR, which may  
serve a dual role of standing in for Use Cases. So, I doubt we will be  
able to prepare and review anything useful by that time.

However, we could arrange for presentation of a few illustrative use  
cases, as long it's understood they don't *necessarily* represent  
consensus, or the entire set of use cases that are important to WG

I think this is i001, which has been resolved. See the issues list;
as well as e-mail on the WG list with a Subject: line containing "i001";
(note that some relevant e-mails may not be so tagged).

This should include the TAG issue just opened.

Beyond that, I'm not sure; any WG issues that are controversial will be  
discussed (and hopefully resolved) at the F2F, so it's difficult to say  
what issues will be existent or controversial at that time.

See above.

Linked from our WG home page;

Note that we have a vote scheduled for next week to approve a new round  
of Working Drafts. In the meantime, it's most appropriate to review the  
current Editors' Drafts.

I'll ask the WG to nominate some.
