Will take a look.

A process break point.... for a draft to be adopted by a working 
group, the authors have to present it (possibly a couple of times) 
then justify to the WG why it is ready to be adopted as a WG item. 
Shouldn't we raise a similar bar for these drafts, rather than pick 
up "a few drafts floating around"?

We have probably all seen these presented (tho I personally haven't 
been in CCAMP so I will have missed narayanan). But I'd now like to 
see the authors justify to us why they are ready to be WG items, 
against the criteria established recently.

Is this fair?
