I think I need to know if there is a desire to form a WG first.
Then we can discuss timing of finishing your draft in relationship to 
estimated timing of creating the WG.
If there is no energy to form a WG any time soon, I will progress your 
draft independently.

I don't want to impose lots of process on you (and cause a delay), but I 
would prefer this be a WG document.
