Re: What is beyond scope of this working group?
You took my comment out of context. Doing so often
makes a statement seem less substantial or relevant
than it really is.
My point in that posting was that I do not believe
the point you were making in the posting to which I
was responding at the time was relevant to scoping
the charter, but a technical issue to be discussed
in the context of the documents which may or may not
actually attempt to go in one direction or another
out of the possibilities that you enumerated. That
was made clearer in a follow up to your posting
in which you clarified your concerns based on the
posting out of which you lifted the statement below.
That you disagree with my position on the matter
is not in issue. What is in issue is whether the
rest of the WG agrees with you perhaps. So far,
I've not seen anyone express similar concerns
related to the charter. And if that remains the
case, John and I have to do what we feel is right
and can get agreement from the IESG on doing.

In writing a charter, discussing and documenting what is beyond
scope of the working group certainly adds value.
I agree with the above statement.
I, for one,
cannot figure out what is beyond the scope of this working group.
That would have been one way to illicit productive discussion
had you worded it that way. As it was written, it did not read to
me as if you were interested in productive discussion to clarify
what is or is not in scope. It read as if you wanted a bit of
flame on the list. If that was my misinterpretation, please consider
this to be an apology.
Your response to one of my previous posts certainly didn't help
Since there is nothing explicitly in the charter about
this, I suppose it would be logical to say that it is
not explicitly prohibited.
I believe here, we just disagree on the nature of the issue.
You believe this to be a WG scoping issue - I believe this to
be a technical issue that needs to be discussed in the context
of actual I-Ds containing relevant text/requirements/specs.
Unless John and I hear from others that they believe this
to be a WG scoping issue rather than a technical issue to
be resolve during engineering discussions - we have to assume
that silence on the topic means that most members of the WG
agree with our take on it.
