Not really.  I'm on the AB, and the last we discussed it was
on our May 8 telcon (where we spent 2 hours on it).  The AB
in general felt that TimBL should broaden the discussion
(beyond the XML Plenary, as has been done), and TimBL indicated
that he wanted to recuse himself from determining consensus so
that he could take an active role in the discussion.

We did not discuss who would determine consensus or what would
constitute termination criteria for this discussion, and there
has been no AB discussion since that May 8 telcon.

Personally, I'm a bit concerned myself that I don't know how
this is all supposed to come to a close.
