Hi Tim -

First of all, I am just trying to test what I think is already the consensus of the group and see if there are any dissenting opinions – so this is a chairing tactic to a certain extent. That's why I clearly signposted my resolution as a "straw man."

Secondly, I think many of the technical arguments emerged during yesterday's call – and I also understood that we need to move quickly so I am trying to fast track some TAG action on this if appropriate.

If it turns out that more TAG discussion is required on this then we may have to wait until next week's call.

Wouldn’t you want consider the substantive technical arguments first, to drive the consensus about what you want to do?  Perhaps I misunderstand.

Totally understand and agree. The resolution below is just intended to get
consensus within the TAG on what we want to do, which we can then use to
craft a more substantive technical argument.
