[802SEC] 802.15 Maintenance PARs

Greetings all-

802.15 has 2 maintenance PARs it is submitting under the 48 hour rule for review and approval on Friday to send to NesCom.

The first is a title change for the 802.15.7REVa revision PAR. The title is currently listed as "Standard for Short Range Wireless Optical Communications" The industry routinely refers to efforts in the space as Optical Wireless Communications (OWC). Since the Tille of the PAR becomes the title of the standard, this PAR requests a title change to "Standard for Short Range Optical Wireless Communications" to better align with industry practice and expectation.

The second is a one year PAR extension for 802.15.8. This project is currently in WG letter ballot but will not be able to complete everything by the end of the year when the current PAR expires. The current project timeline calls for starting Sponsor Ballot in December and submitting to RevCom in May 2016.

A copy of both Maintenance PARs is attached. Please let me know if you have questions or comments.
