Hi Harry,

Thanks for striking the right positive note. Now that I think
back, I *think* Carl-Uno didn't emphasize sufficiently in his
WG last call announcement that the intent was to have an open
WG last call *during* the 44th IETF Plenary this coming week,
so that any comments during the IPP WG session (on Wednesday,
17 March) from any IETF attendees could be officialy captured
as last call comments.

It's not uncommon to ultimately have several WG last calls
on a given generation of documents. Part of the value is to
achieve just what Don Wright and others want - announce publicly
that the scope of a given protocol version is the content of
the last called documents. And WG last call is a lot less
formal than IESG last call - which is still somewhere in the

I'm sure that the results from the IPP Bakeoff2 event (thanks
for stating on the list that it went well, Harry) will lead
to a certain number of clarifications in Model or Protocol
and perhaps quite a few topics for the companion IPP
Implementors Guide.
