Tom, you suggest that "we" draft some answers --- do you have a proposal for
how we should coordinate responses? It would be embarassing if someone got
several different answers to a question.

Oops! We forgot to put the pwg at pwg.org as a DL for comments on
the IPP Internet draft. So the four authors will be receiving comments,
since that was the only DL listed on the Internet Draft.
When we do, we should forward to the ipp DL. So here's the first
such comment that we received. We should draft some answers.
