Working Group,

We've received some good feedback for Santosh to include in the next
revision of the documents and likely have enough discussion to move them
forward in the publication process.

At this point, we are waiting for targeted review from ALU/Nokia who
actually has an implementation of the base multipoint spec.  Once we've
received that review, we can continue in our deliberations.
