You're quite welcome. I would of course be willing to work
under the full direction of WG3, and would simply appreciate
the committee agreeing beforehand to a means by which I
would take such direction, so to avoid any confusion.

I expect it will initially be a somewhat iterative process,
but we'd soon have the historical record online, with links
to the current work, and updated to make more clear the
status of *all* the extant documents. This would reduce any
confusion people might have over the status of our works.

     and believe that their way of doing it is the only right and
     true way and that nobody else knows anything. -- Neil Gaiman
