Ok. Fair enough. I introduced a change related to UPN/FMI/FMA in the
current version of the document. The proposal based on offline discussions
was posted on June/19/2014 and subsequently when no objections were cited,
the editor of the document drafted the text and inserted the same into the

Now lets discuss the issue on your proposed changes. AFAIK, no one in the
WG, not a single person,  understands what they are and why they are
needed. When Suresh was chairing one of the NETEXT sessions, he ran a
consensus call on the same asking if any one understood what the issue is
and you know the result.

Bottom line, if you have a issue with the current version, please post
your issue. State the problem, suggest the text. Do not send your version
of the document to the Editor to be included. I will not agree with you or
any one else editing the document and inserting text for an issue that has
no WG consensus. The point is on the consensus on on the issue and let the
Editor do the drafting. But, if the issue is with the Editor's text, post
it to the group and challenge it/suggest changes, don't just edit WG
Please play by the rules.
