In principle this is still an important area to get right.  Unfortunately there are currently dueling patent lawsuits between my company and a competitor, where one of the patents in the dispute is potentially relevant to this technical issue.  

Until that dispute ends (currently scheduled for trial this September) I am unlikely to be able to contribute in any forum unrelated to the suits.

I was AD when this effort was started, and it's been a while. I fully agree with Wes that we need to finish this, or declare failure and disband the list.

If there is anything I can do to help progress this, I'd be happy to.
