Do you really think that consensus on a difficult topic ilke this is
easy? Sure, we all can create ad hoc stuff. The point is to come to
some collective aggreement (though see below).

I think if you couple my suggested list of properties with Brian's
straw man from awhile back, you'll kniow where we are:


I pinged Brian about gettnig back to this a few days ago. He's been
swamped with other things, but sid time would open up soon-ish.

I should also add for the record that the participants in this
discussion were moving toowards consensus after an IRC meetup, but
Tantek had rather a different idea of process that left a lot of us
