Yes. Here we have to make some choices, I think. I could prepare new  
drafts of two of GTM, TMDM->TMRM, and TMQL, but I'm not sure I could  
do all three. So the question is which to give priority to.

This seems to indicate that a draft of GTM maybe should wait, or at  
least get the lowest priority.

TMQL changes will be basically what's listed as settled at

We can certianly do the TMDM->TMRM mapping in detail. We may be able  
to do some useful things on TMQL as well. It depends on how far my  
preparations progress over the next couple of days.

I agree with all the rest of this, but will spare you the five "Yes"-es.
