    I think you are exaggerating the differences between this draft and previous
    similar drafts. I don't think that any of the features in this draft are
    revolutionary new, you could possibly argue that the exact combination of
    features is different, but the individual features have certainly appeared
    in previous drafts and should come as no surprise to those who have followed
    our discussions over the last year and a half on notifications.

    I hope that you only got carried away because we gave this draft a new file
    name and started off with -00 again.

    I cannot see us winning anything by putting this draft on a shelf for the
    next few of weeks, or months, waiting for somebody to possibly raise
    something to discuss later. Such discussion can equally well take place
    now during the Last Call period.
