In the absence of any documents being submitted for the Seattle meeting 
of WG 3 on TMQL, I would like to draw everyone's attention to the 
following documents which were previously posted for the committee's review:

Current TMQL Draft:


Use Cases:

Use Case Solutions:

Since NBs are already responsible for having read these documents, I 
assume that these documents can form the basis for a discussion of 
"where do we go from here?" In particular, what does the current draft 
fail to do or could be done another way? In order for the editors to 
produce a draft that answers concerns with the present one, those 
shortcomings need to be specified.

The current draft has editorial issues, such as treating prose as 
"non-normative," which I think would come as a surprise to the staff at 
ITTF. They are in the habit of dividing prose into normative vs. 
non-normative prose. I suspect the proposed division in the current 
draft would come as quite a surprise.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Seattle!
