Hi Hannes,

I probably did not follow the meeting of your working group.  I would 
have to read the minutes to see whether there was any contentious issue.

As a general comment, I can guess what some participants will say at 
the microphone as I have interacted with those persons over the 
years.  I would not expect any participant to submit questions 
upfront as it does not make sense to travel to an exotic location to 
answer those questions.
