| Progress on topic maps has been hindered by the lack of consensus on
| the model, TAO or otherwise, for the SAM.

Could you be more specific? Who is disagreeing, and on what? Where has
that disagreement been voiced?

| Standards development is a process of reaching consensus and that
| takes as long as it takes.

We've now waited two years for this. In that time nothing but model
work has been done (and some progress on published subjects).
