Subject: Re: [emergency] CAP-related Comments

Thanks for the reminder, Eliot,

I confess I did not go back to the spec itself when responding to 
that specific issue, on which I got bogged down in thinking about the 
specifics in Walid's compilation of comments into an issue list. The 
upshot is that there is now one less reason to spend time tweaking 
CAP instead of going forward to making it an official Committee 
Specification candidate for a 30-day public review and formalizing 
the process of collecting comments, listing them for discussion and 
resolution and addressing them in the TC meetings following the 
release of the candidate spec...

Good catch,
