from what I understood from Jim's reply, somebody from OASIS would need to 
request (with their OASIS hat on) to give a progress report of the group as 
part of the liaison. This is possible. Is somebody going to be there that 
will represent OASIS and want to give this report? I remember that Eric 
Freese seemed to be at the meetings as an OASIS representative.
