802.11 disagrees with the response of 802.15 in the case of the 802.15.3 revision.
The PAR shows a changed title:
2.1 The title is ambiguous, the new title should still have some definition or indication that this is a WPAN standard.
5.2 The scope is very ambiguous and does not provide a boundary for the reader to determine what is covered by this standard.
From 802.11: 2.1 The title is ambiguous, the new title should still have some definition or indication that this is a WPAN standard.
Response: 802.15 moved beyond a purely PAN oriented group well over 10 years ago. This title reflects todays reality and is consistent with the titles now in use on other 802.15 Standards. We appreciate the comment but plan to stay with the current title.
From 802.11: 5.2 The scope is very ambiguous and does not provide a boundary for the reader to determine what is covered by this standard.
Response: This scope has been approved by the EC and NesCom on two previous occasions over the last 18 months. We appreciate the comment but are staying with the scope as submitted.
The following rebuttal was approved by the 802.11 PAR SC, and will be brought to motion
in the 802.11 closing plenary:
The suggested new title does not provide enough clarity to differentiate this new title from any other IEEE wireless standard, and a reader would not be able to tell from the title and/or scope which particular wireless technology they were selecting when presented with just the title and scope.
Within 802, the title does not suggest that this standard belongs to 802.15 and could equally apply to an 802.11 Standard.
I agree fully with this rebuttal. Given this, I will not be supporting approval of this PAR in the closing EC.
Jon will be circulating a link to the full PAR comment responses after approval by the WG. The comment cited above is the only one that gave 802.11 any heartache, so I thought I should highlight the issue as early as possible.
