Just to report, I had a chat with Kazuhisa-san after the RG meeting, and 
we settled that he’ll produce the next draft revision, which I’ll 
review personally and have the ICNRG folks look at so we can get to RG 
last cal expeditiously.

It’s kind of sad that congestion control keeps sliding off the table. 
I understand that we can’t keep pushing stuff that nobody is prepared 
to step up and work on, but taking it off the work plan seems to be 
admitting defeat on something that is sufficiently important that we 
ought not to give up on.
