  Overall goals of this meeting and any subsequent follow-up:

    1. To develop a shared understanding of the motivating use cases
       that XRIs are designed to address.
    2. To help the TAG understand any significant changes in the design
       of XRI's since its review on 2005
    3. To develop a shared understanding of the adequacy/inadequacy of
       existing URI schemes to address those needs.
    4. To put on the public record points of mutual agreement or
       disagreement, particularly those that either party believes to
       be unresolvable
    5. To clarify licensing concerns with respect to XRI TC outputs


    1. Convene
          + Meeting Aims and Objectives (Stuart)
          + Introductions - Name, affiliation, [initial disposition and
            aspirations]. (all)
    2. Summary of XRI Position (XRI TC)
          + What problems we are trying to solve?
          + Why we did not feel http(s) URIs alone were an adequate
          + How the XRI 2.0 framework solves these problems, i.e., what
            are the key elements the XRI 2.0 specs cover. Here we would
            focus on addressing what we believe may be some
            misperceptions the TAG and others might have about XRI 2.0.
          + How XRI TC operates in an RF IPR mode and the separation
            between the XRI TC and any XRI registries.
    3. Summary of TAG Position (Henry Thompson for TAG)
          + TAG Issue [4]UrnsAndRegistries-50
          + [5]AWWW position on New URI schemes.
    4. Discussion
          + How far apart are we?
          + Potential areas for compromise/agreement?
               o Small (or large) shifts of position that might lead to
                 more agreement.
          + Potential areas of irresolvable disagreement
    5. Next-Steps (last 20 minutes of the meeting)
          + Various possibilities depending on this meeting
               o None!
               o Focussed email exchanges to pursue particular threads
                 of discussion to a conclusion.
               o Further 'whole' group telcon(s).
               o Further 'small' sub-group telcon(s)
          + The (co-)chairs may need to work offline to propose
