Michael and I have a new version of the WG draft motivating use of ECN.
This version seeks to produce a readable and near-complete version that
should be ready for review comments. Please let us know what you think via

I plan to upload this version to the archives as soon as they reopen.

Best wishes,

Gorry & Michael
