Technical Summary
 
  This document describes an RFC 3933 experiment in the Working Group
  formation process, known as the Study Group.  Study Groups may be
  created as the first step toward Working Group formation, or as an
  intermediate step between a Birds of a Feather (BOF) session and
  Working Group creation.  Study Groups are focused on completion of
  prerequisites for Working Group formation, and as a result they have
  a short life-time, with limited opportunities for milestone
  extension.
 
Working Group Summary
 
  No working group. This proposal comes from discussion
  of IETF processing delays and BOF formation problem
  on the IETF discussion list.
