I'm sorry that my reply is on pwg-announce. However, I need to respond to 
the Ira's email that he sent via pwg-announce.

I hope that the PWG members are willing to accept the notification 
documents in their current form and will not request any changes or 
enhancements (small typos and errors excepted).  In their current form, 
they are likely to be published as RFCs soon because IETF reviewers have 
made comments about the documents and I have made corrections that address 
IETF reviewers' suggestions.  If I make changes beyond those requested by 
the IETF reviewers, there are two major problems.
First, I don't have time to make major changes and no one else does 
either.  I have offered to do only a small amount of pro-bono 
work.  Second, the IETF review process would have to start all over again, 
and the reviewers have made it clear that they don't want to review the 
documents again. Unless these documents progress in essentially their 
current form,  they run a very high risk of never being published by the 

I believe that it is best for the PWG to ensure that the IETF publish these 
3 documents, and that means that they must be published in their current 
form. If PWG wants to make extensions to these documents, such extensions 
should be published in new IEEE-ISTO documents via some new process that is 
a successor to the process that produced these documents.
