Re: [802SEC] Results of EC ballot on Liaison letter to SC6
Thanks for the suggestions - and I am personally comfortable with them.
I'd like to see some further feedback from the EC Note: we have a JTC1 committee meeting next week in Jacksonville we can use for a discussion forum.
Also note that the baseline document we voted on has been sent to SC6 and posted by Jooran - hence we have successfully met the Guangzhou meeting posting deadline.
If we get some positive feedback from the EC on these revisions what we can do is either post to Sc6 a revision or carry in the revisions to the Guangzhou meeting.

I know it is time to ship this thing but (as an engineer and as always) I have a couple of minor twiddles that
(a) if we put in will improve the accuracy of the text but
(b) we can live without.
Where we say: "It also avoids any difficulties related to the MAC address registry agreements between IEEE, ISO and IEC, which rely on a number of the documents identified in 6N14713."
It should say: "It also avoids any difficulties related to the registry agreements between IEEE, ISO and IEC, which rely on a number of the documents identified in 6N14713."
RATIONALE: We wish to protect all of the registries (e.g. EtherType) related to 802, not just the MAC address registry.
Where we say: "We note that the ISO/IEC "stabilized" status is beneficial to stakeholders because the IEEE has no equivalent status that does not require ongoing maintenance."
It should say: "We note that the ISO/IEC "stabilized" status is beneficial to stakeholders because the IEEE has no equivalent status."
RATIONALE: IEEE doesn't have any equivalent status (by either name or
practice) as of the new year which is "equivalent."
I suggest we leave it up to Paul and Bruce to decide what to do regarding this input.
Happy New Year to all and Best Regards,
