Well, to avoid eventual cancellation, we must move faster. Here is an
alternative plan and I think it is better.
1. Bill creates a new draft by the end of this week that includes all the items
that do not need discussion.
2. The interop. email group takes ownership for 3 weeks to hash out the other
issues and create a new pdf by 1 May.
3. We have a 3-week informal WG5 ballot on whether this new version is ready for
4. Bill creates a further new draft based on comments and the interop. email
group checks it.
5a. If we have reached consensus, the PDTR ballot starts in late May or very
early in June. The goal would be to get enough PDTR feedback before the meeting
to create a tentative DTR for issue after the PDTR ballot finishes.
5b. Otherwise, we work hard before and at the meeting to reach consensus and
start the PDTR ballot soon afterwards. The "base document" at this point will be
the version created in step 4.
I hope this is acceptable to everyone. Anyone not in interop. email group who
would like to participate is very welcome.
