Hi -

As a technical contributor (returning from two blissful weeks without email) ...

That was outside the scope for which ltru was originally chartered.

I agree.

(As co-chair) This seems reasonable for now.  If it turns out to require
significant discussion, or if a better WG "home" appears, we
can redirect the discussion at that time.

(As technical contributor) I would not support adding this work
to the ltru charter.
