I fully support spending the bulk of the time here on resolver-associated, but I'm concerned that having the same presentation given twice in the balance of time.  It could be three if you wanted to use the last 10 minutes on draft-bertola-bcp-doh-clients.

There are lots of different concerns in these drafts, but maybe we can find one key point to concentrate on.  I don't see us being able to settle one, let alone two, but we might get further into a single topic. 

Martin, I’ll be happy to work with Jason and the WG co-chairs so we all make the most productive use of the WG time in Prague.

However it seems unlikely there would be "the same presentation given twice” even if that discussion didn’t take place. The two drafts are very different, albeit with some overlap. And maybe that overlapping material (bypass concerns mostly?) should get moved into yet another draft which might well end up being for another WG.

draft-livingood-doh-implementation-risks-issues and draft-reid-doh-operator discuss quite distinct aspects of the impact of DoH deployment/uptake. IMO both should be considered separately by the WG. It would be a pity if they were somehow smashed together into a single discussion topic for Prague. If that did happen, I fear the discussion would lack focus and probably be inconclusive.

I think the questions to resolve at the WG are:

1) Are the issues identified in draft-livingood-doh-implementation-risks-issues valid/reasonable and does the WG want to work on them?
2) Are the issues identified in draft-reid-doh-operator valid/reasonable and does the WG want to work on them?

And if the answers to q1 or q2 are no, the followup question would be:
	what, if anything, needs to be done to the draft(s) to make them WG compatible?

It would be good if further discussion on the list focused on these 2 or 3 questions.
