Folks -

With the last of SIMPLE's documents going into the RFC Editor queue,
I'm closing the group. It's been a long road since we demonstrated
running code in Pittsburg at IETF 48's IMPP meeting in the summer
of 2000. It's been great to be part of helping evolve those early ideas.

I'm sure there will be new things to do related to SIMPLE in the future, 
anticipate that we'll form new, focused working groups to work through them.
DISPATCH will help us find the right structure to get any new work done.

Thanks to everyone for the effort you've put into this working group over
the years. I'm proud to have been a part of it.
