Sorry for not responding sooner.

The above is the essential point:

     As of now, the wg has no draft.

     The revised 'personal' draft needs to be REVIEWED BY THE WORKING
GROUP and approved for adoption by the wg.  The chair (me) does the
mechanics of approving the document into the working group's online
space for documents, but it's based on working group rough consensus.

So that everyone is clear:  IETF working group "Adoption" is not an
approval of the content of the draft, but rather agreement to use the
document as a base for the work of the group.

To emphasize:

     We need to see enough comments posted about the draft to determine
that there is real breadth and depth of interest in it.

     That is, we need to see activity that shows there is some real
range of different people active in the topic and that that range has
rough consensus to adopt the document.
