I agree with trying to do more via email. Right now the
IPP telecons are eating into too much of my time, so
I would prefer to try email. Maybe telecons after the

to the IETF. If you can, fine, but I would not recommend
this be our "primary goal".
I should have my promised comments before the end
of the week and these may have more impact on the
draft and generate more discussion.
