This is a good plan for MOBOPTS to stay active and relevant. But it is also significantly broadening the charter compared to what we currently have. This is not an issue per se, but the IAB and myself will want to see substantial, continuous and relevant researcher participation in the RG, before approving a new charter. I hope that the meeting in Quebec will put us on the track for that to occur.

Thanks,
Lars
