Re: [802SEC] request for input from 802 EC members regarding 8802-1 review
Andrew, et al,
Should not the topic at the right on slide 8 say "The review will draw on
the OPINIONS of all stakeholders" rather than "The review will draw on the
OPTIONS of all stakeholders" ???
The text on the right side of slide 9 calls the status of IEEE standards as
"international standards" into question. From the perspective of a member
of the IEEE-SA Board of Governors, I believe that this in in conflict with
the goals of IEEE-SA to gain (increasing) acceptance of IEEE standards as
being international in nature and IEEE-SA being an international (rather
than US-centric) SDO, without dependence on any other body/SDO.
(This calling into question also seems at odds with the text on the left
side of slide 13, which states " ... 8802-1, which highlights the ".
undoubted standing of IEEE 802 as the international body that makes LAN
I would also point out that the IEEE has Sector Memberships in ITU-R and
ITU-T (and at least the R Sector membership is in the same category (i.e.,
"on an equal footing with" ISO).
I am concerned that the text on the right side of slide 9 could undermine
IEEE's efforts to reinforce its stature as a truly international SDO.
There appears to be a typo in the last bullet on slide 15 ("This mechanism
was outlined n 6N11917 but apparently never implemented" - I assume should
be "... outlined IN 6N11917 ..."
