I would like to second what Brian said.  This work has been going on for a long time (two years?) and it needs to get to completion.  

I think the DT is completed now that <draft-ietf-6man-rfc3484-revise-00.txt> was published.  As Brian said, now we need an actual specification that proposes specific changes to RFC3484.  I would like to see the first draft at least a month before the Beijing meeting to allow for a discussion and an update prior to the cutoff for drafts.

If you do not think you can make this schedule, please let us know.
