[802SEC] Update on P802c PAR



Thanks for the thoughtful comments that we received from the 802.3, 802.11, 802.15 and 802.16 working groups.  We have also received additional comments, including from the Privacy study group.  The comments have been consolidated in this document:


After review in 802.1, it is clear that in order to properly address these comments we need more time.  The comments demonstrated some support for the project but also a lack of clarity in intent within the PAR and CSD.  It is clarifying the intent in the Scope, Purpose, and Need that will take more time.  As several suggested, the creation of a study group will allow us the time to discuss the responses, this proposed PAR and potentially additional PARs.


As a result, we will not respond to the PAR comments at this time.  Instead I propose to defer consideration of a PAR until the next plenary. 802.1 is currently drafting a proposal, for EC consideration on Friday, to form an 802.1 study group.  This study group will facilitate a detailed discussion amongst 802 working groups and will be able to make PAR  proposal(s) for the March plenary.  The joint interim in January will allow for participation of all working groups.
