I'd like to quickly thank the working group participants for all of
their hard work over the years.

We sent ~9,600 emails (or ~1400 threads :-)), and published 8
documents (including draft-ietf-dane-smime).
We also had some fun, made some friends, and learnt a lot.

We are now seeing deployment in the mail world, and I think that we
can be proud of what we've accomplished...

Thanks again,

I don't think the execution is relevant when it was obviously a bad
idea in the first place.
This is like putting rabid weasels in your pants, and later expressing
regret at having chosen those particular rabid weasels and that pair
of pants.
