My last message already stated my position on this issue, but
since this is the "formal" thread for this topic, I am compelled
to post a response here, for the record.

Underscore has indeed stated that "we believe the MIB is broken",
but more importantly, we also stated that we stand behind Harry's
proposal 100%.

And, as stated previously, you really must put a deadline on receipt
of comments on this thread if you're ever going to draw a line on
consensus in a timely manner.

Please follow-up with a deadline for comments, Lloyd. Thanks.
