Hey, Pat -

I think the argument is rather that at this stage in the game we're
not prepared to have that conversation. We've got a number of folks in
the TC working furiously - early mornings, late nights, weekends, and
holidays - all striving to get the committee draft specs out by 29

I don't think there's anyone in the TC who would discount the need to
eventually define specifics around conformance to the CTI standards.
It's just that there are only so many hours in a day, and out of the
almost 300 TC members, there are about 25-30 who are doing the lion's
share of the work.

We will get around to tackling conformance soon. We just don't have
the bandwidth *now*. Moreover, as there are liable to be substantive
changes to the various draft specs during the upcoming public comment
periods it would be rather a dubious undertaking to tackle conformance
