I caught up with the thread about this proposed working group.  The 
(proposed) charter might say that it is not trying to create an 
embedded identifier to track users.  What if that was a side effect 
of this work?

I took a look at the ideas problem statement draft.  I can understand 
that there may be a need for identification.  However, it is up to 
the companies or 501(c)(3) status organizations to make their case for that.

Will this proposed working group do any maintenance work on IPv4 
technical specifications?  Will the output of this proposed working 
group be used for future work on IPv4 technical specifications?
