Re: [802SEC] Q&A on the operation of the 802.11ax dominance remedy
In the interests of full disclosure, I have received a comment from an
EC member on my
proposed method of conducting letter ballot.
That member believes that the method I propose is not valid. I believe
they would prefer the
ballot group to be fixed at the start of the ballot and remain constant
until the completion of
the ballot series.
I believe that my proposal is valid, and offer the following points in
support of my opinion:
1. One way of looking at the "special measure" is that they do not
affect the composition of the ballot group, but
they do affect the means of calculating a result from the votes cast
(i.e. such votes are "counted as one").
2. If all members subject to special measures are excluded from the
ballot, how is the vote of this group of members to be determined?
3. There are no rules that I am aware of for conduct of WG letter
ballots. In 802.11 we generally make WG letter ballot as similar as
possible to sponsor ballot, but there is no requirement that this be so.
4. This is an exceptional case, not covered by sponsor ballot rules.

Dear 802.11 participants and EC,
As 802.11 WG chair, I have been instructed to implement the remedy
approved by the 802 EC.
In doing so, a number of questions about process have already been
asked by participants.
I have attempted to answer these here:
If anybody has an additional question, I will attempt to answer it in
this document, provided it falls
within the scope of the actions that I have been instructed to take.
