I'll be candid.  I took a quick look at the draft.  About a third of 
the text in draft-ietf-urnbis-rfc2141bis-urn-03 is non-technical 
material.  When I compare this draft with the one submitted by Peter 
Saint-Andre, I am inclined to pick the latter.

I am ok if you take off-list comments.  I think that it is better to 
discuss about changes on-list.  BTW, you get a +2 for the extensive 
notes in the Changes section.  You are going for a Working Group Last 
Call during the Turkey Day/Shopping season.  It's not the best time 
in my humble opinion.  I understand that I am skidding on process ice 
by saying this.  May I humbly suggest that you discuss the matter of 
the drafts with Peter?  Broad agreement would be my preference.
