Wes and I feel that this work is substantively ready for publication.
If the chairs approve, we'd like to advance this draft to WG last call.

This is also a good time for the working group to read the document,
we've put a lot of work into the document structure between version
04 and version 05, so the differences are as large as the document.

The main substantive change as that SMTP for MUAs has been dropped
from this specification.  It now specifies opportunistic DANE TLS
only for MTA to MTA SMTP.
