After deliberation on this question, Canada has decided to support the 
progress of SAM and XTM to CD status as soon as possible without regard for 
any delays that may be needed for the consideration of RM or TMM or any 
other issue.  While Canada supports continuing efforts in RM and TMM 
research and developments, and we are interested in the prospects they 
present, we recognize in our use of Topic Map technologies more urgency and 
benefit in working with a finalized (or at least close to finalized) CD of 
SAM and XTM as soon as possible.

Unfortunately our usual WG3 representatives (Derek and Dmitry) are unable 
to attend the London meeting, so I will be attending the WG3 sessions on 
their behalf and will try as best I can to represent their interests.
