Re: [802SEC] EC Workshop Action Item regarding 802 Architecture


Attached is my submission as a draft for your consideration per action item 30 of the list out of our July workshop. I expect that James should put 2-5 minutes on the Monday agenda for me to discuss this. We should decide then whether we want to try to finalize it during the week or put it out for mail review.

I don't think that there should be anything in it that is controversial, but then what do I know?

Best regards,
