Re: [802SEC] November minutes and PARs for March meeting
I don't think I quite understand that conclusion. We did not vote to change the rules. I guess the implication is that we voted to not follow the rules this time. Which of course was my question about suspending the rules.

The minutes say:
Shellhammer asked if we can bypass EC review just by a vote or if this
was a vote to suspend the rules.
Stevenson: Due to the IMT deadlines, it makes sense in this one instance
to delegate the responsibilities. This is not intended to set a ongoing
Kraemer: It was prepared with the intention that it was within the rules.
Sherman did not see any issue with the rules.
Based on the discussion and responses, I would say it is clear that one
effect of the vote is that the normal EC review, and hence vote, could
be bypassed in this case.

At the time it was stated that the effect of this motion was "the EC would not need to approve the IMT-Advanced submission to the ITU." I questioned that statement at the time but the EC did not go thought the document in detail. I requested the Chair to provide an interpretation as to whether what was stated verbally was what the vote was about. Now that the minutes are posted I went over the document and I don't see anything stating that the EC does not have to vote on the IMT-Advanced submission to the ITU.
