I cleaned up the text from the Memorandum I sent out earlier and removed
some of the more gratuitous commentary.
I think the conclusions and action items are a little more straightforward
Comments are welcome at any time.
This draft should be a more suitable discussion item IETF Orlando and the
upcoming PWG meetings.
