Thanks for posting your views.
You'll have seen Russ's comments on the details and loose ends as I
call them. Russ and I were mostly agreed on these points.
I have written a draft resolution from my own point of view and
checked it into the tech-ctte git repo. Perhaps some of it is useful.
Ansgar commented a bit on it on IRC. I guess I should post it.

I agree with the latter part of this.
