The draft that's posted as of today is [1], which is the draft of 24 May. 
We did discuss this some at the Google F2F, although few TAG members had 
read it before the meeting.  I want to remind everyone that I suggested 
I'd be trying to get a new draft together this week, and it's still my 
hope to do so.  I'd say the chances are 60/40. 

So, you probably don't want to read the draft at [1], as there's a good 
chance it will be replaced.  If I should fail in the effort to redraft 
then I leave it to the chair as to whether it's worth any more F2F time, 
since I'm not sure there will be any "news", except insofar as some of the 
TAG members who didn't read [1] last time may choose to do so now. 

Anyway, I'm traveling starting Sunday night, and am hoping to get 
something posted before I leave, which would give everyone a week to read 
it.  Shouldn't be very long, in fact, one of the comments I received in 
June was to cut out some of the discussion at the beginning, so it should 
get a bit shorter.
