Don't single out Xiaoshu as there are other dissenters as well... The  
first step is an issue summary document (focusing not on solutions  
but on use cases), and preparing that can go on in parallel with  
discussion of the merits of various solutions.

I will add to the solutions list Xiaoshu's suggestion to use CN to  
choose metadata instead of webarch-representation, with a brief  
statement of what the TAG's position has been on this idea, which  
surfaces from time to time.

This sounds like a fine plan. If you're uncomfortable with the wiki  
we can use some other medium; I'm not too particular.

It would be helpful to know any deadlines you, Mark, and others are  
working under, beyond POWDER last call at the end of the month, which  
you already mentioned.

I think you just create an account for yourself, and logged in users  
can write.
