I vote DISAPPROVE on the basis of other comments that I expect
to have fixed

In 3.4.2 (as well as elsewhere in the
P&P) there is no text dealing with how we have to handle comments from those
LMSC members (or others) who are not on the SEC. This needs to be handled with

happens when and if a WG Chair (or someone jumping in to sure the deadline is
met) DOESN'T get the material forwarded to a WG reflector within 5 days.
Do we invalidate the ballot? This would equivalent to a pocket veto and a bad
idea. We could bump the schedule on the basis of the last distribution date but
that gets complicated and could invalidate a rules ballot on the basis of late
closing date. I'm not exactly sure how to fix this. I would like to discuss this
during the rules meeting. I do hope, however, that we can avoid deep-ending on
the issue. Posting ballots on the web-site would help some.

Dear SEC members,
Attached you will
find the text for an SEC rules change letter ballot on SEC Electronic
Balloting. This letter ballot was approved at the Friday, November 15,
2002 plenary session. I have made some minor editorial changes to the
text originally presented (inserted dates / corrected grammar). The
ballot relates to a prior letter ballot on the same subject but (as explained
in the letter ballot text) it is substantially changed.
The scope and
purpose of the changes being balloted are as follows:
facilitate the SEC consensus process.
Scope: To clarify and
improve the SEC process for balloting.
The ballot opens today - January
6, 2003 and closes February 6, 2003 12 at 11:59 PM EDT. (remember if you do
not vote or abstain it is equivalent to a DISAPPROVE vote). Buzz, please
ensure this gets sent to the "802ALL" email list as well. WG chairs, if
you haven't already done so, please invite your WG members to comment through
