Well the name thing is important to the IESG since they have a very strong
opinion that the work should not be cast as an alternative to GSTN Fxx.
There are some serious Layer 9 issues here especially with regards to
cooperation with the ITU and considering the BOF was privately refered to
by some folks in Minneapolis as "Son of IPP".

I'll have more details tommrrow but I feel much better about the prospects
for getting a charter approved which would give us the green light to start
some work.
