I would like to have a process check regarding the issuing of draft 
standards in the PWG.  The good news is that we've had quite a lot of 
draft activity recently. This demonstrates vibrant interest in our 
standards within the industry. We've also been fairly diligent in 
following the use of a standard template (the ISTO tells me there will be 
come template updates forthcoming). In our enthusiasm, however, we've 
begun to overlook the need for a formal process of introducing, 
chartering, developing, reviewing and accepting the draft as a standard. 
The most outward evidence of this is that new drafts are being issues with 
ISTO PWG standard document numbers already assigned. 

I would like to amend our process to clarify that new draft proposals 
should be named following a convention "pwg-working group-proposal name" 
(ex. "pwg-ipp-actual-attributes-v1-01" or "pwg-ps-spec-v0-91"). 

I will allow discussion on this in case we need to hone the format. Once 
decided, we will migrate to using the new naming convention.
