In London, we continued discussion of the Invariants document, and confirmed the plan to issue a WGLC on it now, with the understanding that after WGLC closes we will "park" the document until the rest of the document set is ready for publication.

The purpose of doing so is to give a high level of confidence that the invariants will not change, while leaving the possibility of changes open if we find *strong* reasons to do so -- i.e., the bar for introducing changes to the Invariants will be much higher after WGLC.

Please have a look at the document and raise any issues on the issues list or on this e-mail list:

WGLC will end on 11 April 2018.


Mark and Lars, WG Chairs
