Contrary to appearances I am working hard on

  ACTION-691: Prepare table as described in 2012-04-04 minutes, for TAG review

which is due today. (Remember this is an evaluation of how well
various use cases fare under the various issue-57 proposals that are
on the table.) I have been working on the use case vs. proposal
matrix, and we could talk about it Thursday, but I think discussion
will be more efficient and profitable if we waited a week so that I'm
better prepared.

Those who would like to monitor my progress can consult

  http://www.w3.org/wiki/HTTPURIUseCaseMatrix

and other pages linked from http://www.w3.org/wiki/TagIssue57Home . I
plan to add two more use cases to the matrix, and review and document
all matrix entries.

The analysis has been extraordinarily difficult as the problem and
solution spaces are very high dimensional, and the proposals read as
if they are apples, oranges, mangoes, pine nuts, wing nuts, and
quantum foam.

We should also be prepared to talk about whether and how to hand this
work off to some other group, and I'd like some time to prepare for
that discussion.

Best
Jonathan
