Disapprove. (It won’t matter to the approval, since I don’t believe that 8.1.1 specifies a supermajority requirement.)
I think the statement is asking for contributions of documentation to be considered as the basis of standardization (“using the IEEE 802 open standards development process”). To my knowledge, we don’t have a PAR for that. I think it’s a little misleading to ask for contributions, which we will make public, while giving the impression that those contributions will be going toward a standard, without providing notice that we are not authorized to develop such a standard.

Paul has delegated the conduct of the EC electronic ballot on the following motion to me.
At the January IEEE 802 meeting the attached liaison was approved by a vote of 3/0/1 of the 802.19 voting members and 12/0/1 of everyone in the room.
Since this is a liaison to an external body it requires a 2/3 approval rate, as per section 8.1.1 of the operations manual.
I am declaring an early close (see below).
Approve the attached liaison (document: “19-16-0029-00-0000-3GPP-Jan-2016-Liaison”) from IEEE 802 to 3GPP.
Start of ballot: Friday January 22, 2016
Close of ballot: February 1, 2016 11:59PM AOE
Early close: As required in subclause 4.1.2 'Voting rules' of the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee (LMSC) Operations Manual, this is notice that, to ensure the release is provided in a timely manner, this ballot may close early once sufficient responses are received to clearly decide a matter.
