I suppose I have a useless answer: sooner rather than later <smile/>. There 
really isn't much else to do from the WG point of view! Don needs to 
give me some section 5 edits, I'll prepare the spec and formally request 
Candidate REC. (Today I presented some of the technical issues arising 
during Last Call to the Team and Director; I feel confident that our 
answers are reasonable/acceptable on the technical level.) So *I* need to 
do a few editorial/process thingies, but otherwise the substantive work 
item for the WG is implementation and interop: that will determine our 
future speed and progress. The more examples we post and interop results we 
can collect, the better our speed of advancement.

Yes, you're right, and now that I look at it, this text is in the wrong 
place. It's redundant with 5.1, so I've moved it to a new 5.2 qualification 
of Decryption/5.1 .
