All,

I fully agree with Keith. I have said it before, and I repeat it again, it
is now time for the members of the IPP WG to start behaving like an IETF WG.

Don't waste more of our time on non-Internet scenarios.

Let us focus on how to PROVIDE the required security features rather than
fighting them!
I know that Paul and others are fully capable of doing that if you want to.
