Roger -

This is exactly how previous such PARs have been drafted; I helped Mike to 
fill in the PAR form in line with past policy. Look on the inside cover of 
802.1D-1998; you will find that it incorporates supplements 802.6k, 
802.11c, and 802.12e.

I think the decision on that should be left to such a time as we are clear 
what the real (as opposed to projected) timing will look like. I'm not 
about to create any issues with regard to how fast either of these 
activities can progress. In reality, we're very nearly done with the D 
revision work.
