I'm surprised to see new personal addresses being provisioned under

IESG and the LLC some while back (when I was still a member of the IESG)

move ahead with "" email addresses:

Where do we stand on that plan, and what is the current thinking about 
how we might unwind in-use personal addresses under ""?
