All of that is a good and just reason to send out calls for adoption.  
But the point of the previous messages was that the poll was not the way 
to do that.  Basically, making a poll choice without providing context 
and an opportunity for discussion a) lacks transparency (in that when 
the chairs make a decision, the WG has no basis on which to evaluate 
that decision), b) lacks nuance (in that the choices provided do not 
cover some shadings of what to do - e.g., not ready for consideration), 
c) lacks WG participation (a discussion about a document gets us to a 
better result than blind voting).

The fact that the chairs did not respond to the original messages is 
also a bit problematic.

Later, Mike
