Hi Jari,

thanks for the help on RFC5889, it was tough, but at least we finally got
If my help is deemed useful for some document to come in this realm, let me
know. I'll be glad contribute.

A side note: if we are to close the working group, do you think it would be
useful for the record to publish

After all, this document was extensively discussed, there was a rough
consensus in the
the WG about it, and its content may be useful to designers and implementers
down the line.
Any thoughts about this?
