Claudio,

As I told IAB Wednesday morning in another context, I don't believe a vote
is possible at the next telechat.  Assuming the "does this agreement conform
to RFC 1602" hurdle is crossed, our normal procedures still require us to
issue a Last Call and then wait at least a couple of weeks before voting.
I would assume that the question of "is this really worthwhile without NFS"
would come up during the Last Call discussion and, since the AD and Area
that hosted the relevant WG are long gone, I would assume that we would need
to find a forum and relevant body to discuss the topic.

I just see no other alternative, unless we are to adopt a new metarule that
says "anything that gets stalled for two years is automatically entitled to
elevation to Proposed Standard".

If Dave doesn't like that, let him appeal it.  The procedures are, in this
case, pretty clear.
