I agree.  However, from the explainations I've
seen, I believe that the process HAS been followed
in a fair and appropriate manner.

Frankly, I don't see any deficiencies that I believe
should block this standard from going forward.

The longer the standard is delayed unnecessarily,
the more non-standard product based on earlier
drafts is shipped, causing interoperability issues
and raising questions as to the value of the final

I think that further delays are not in the interest
of IEEE or the standard, based on what I've seen.
