We think our poll results could map to these initial milestones:

  - November 2023 - call for adoption of drafts related to
    post quantum cryptography to produce a proposed standard
  - January 2024 - call for adoption of drafts related to
    superseded keys to produce a proposed standard RFC
  - January 2024 - call for adoption of drafts related to
    persistent symmetric keys to produce a proposed standard
  - March 2024 - call for adoption of drafts related to
    WKD and/or HKP to produce a proposed standard RFC

The above basically stages the top 4 from the poll but
with a bit of a nod to recent list discussion related to
WKD/HKP. (On that last, if we plan a call for adoption in
6 months time, we've plenty of time to think more.)

That looks to the chairs like it may be tractable set of
topics to try address in a reasonable time-frame so we'd
like to get your feedback on that as an outcome by the
27th of October.

No objection from me!
