Hello Barry,

[cc (former) IDNA WG mailing list]

The current -01 draft of this document was reviewed and discussed 
extensively on the (former) IDNA WG mailing list last December
In my understanding, there was quite some agreement on what needed to be 
fixed, and these fixes were mostly editorial, although some of them on a 
very hight level.

I have nothing against making that draft a working item of the Apps WG 
(hopefully being done with it very quickly, because it has already been 
discussed extensively on the IDNA list), but I'd prefer to do this in a 
way that avoids having to send in the same comments twice. My preference 
would be to have the authors integrate the comments from the IDNA list 
and then take the draft up here, because I think it will make it easier 
for reviewers here to review the draft.

Regards,  Martin.
