This and its companion document
passed ICNRG Last call in January, and has the support of the RG to progress

discussions, the chairs assess that on balance these documents provide useful
background and a valuable discussion of various tradeoffs and approaches to the

We therefore believe these are ready for IRSG Review and hopefully progression
toward publication.
