Yes, saw that on slashdot which prompted me to remember the dependency, 
which is particularly relevant given we're in Last Call. I'd argue we can 
go into Candidate REC (CR) without it, but we can't leave CR without it 
being specified (via a normative reference) and implemented. Does anyone 
have an expectation of how long this would take?
