Re: [802SEC] EC Email Ballot: 802.17b Revised PAR to NesCom
802.17 has never appeared in a ISO/IEC 8802 standard.
When we started .17 and .17a and .17b the current
kerfuffle over WAPI had not occurred and it seemed
prudent to leave open the possibility to push .17
into ISO/IEC. In the end, the WG has never chosen
to do it, but we keep it on the PAR form to stay consistent
with previous projects.
Wrt to the Title:
a) we were missing the Part 17
b) we had excess capitalization
c) we were missing the (RPR) that was in the base
