Hi Paul,

A bare outline is not the required whitepaper per the current PWG policy
for new projects.  The whitepaper in question would look more like the
intermediate drafts of (for instance) CWMP that Nancy and I wrote - that
is, it should have pretty complete use cases, design requirements, and
some main section content that clearly shows the "solution approach".

I don't think we should break that policy by voting on an outline.  I think
Bill's point was that volunteer(s) to be editors should write fairly solid
whitepapers that include a good deal of the above content.  I agree.

Cheers,
- Ira

PS - I don't volunteer to be an SM editor.  Between IPP, IETF, TCG, and
now ETSI and ITU-T specs, I've got a full plate already.
