It seems like we've made it through WGLC with no substantive issues.
So I hereby call 2440bis "done".  I'll formerly request that Sam
present it to the IESG later this week.

Jon, if you intend to issue a bis18 then I'll wait, but if it's just
a simple edit we could send bis17 with the editor note to make the
change you missed.  Please let me know your intension.
