Jim, I am abstaining on SEC Ballots #1 and #2 as this topic is too
far out of my expertise.  I also would like to express my concern 
that regardless of the worthiness of the positions in these letters
their poor grammar reflects poorly on IEEE 802.  For instance, the
last sentence in the excerpt below appears to have incorrect subject
verb agreement: "Two working groups held ... and respectfully submits...."
Also, this is inconsistant anyway because the first sentence says
the letter is from IEEE 802 not the working groups.

Networks) held an Interim Meeting in San Rosa CA (13 - 17September 1999)
and, based on additional material submitted, 2 respectfully submits these
additional comments in this proceeding."

SEC in July. Also another letter has been voted on (see ballot #2). The two
