That was not sarcasm.  Sarcasm would be if I said, "And here we have yet 
another brilliant constructive statement from Mr. Pawson".

But the truth of it is, as everyone involved in a TC or WG knows, the work 
is prioritized according to the interests and abilities of those doing the 
work.  None of us are members of J/SC34, and no one should be shocked or 
even surprised that the TC's technical agenda does not accord perfectly 
with their particular priorities or timetable.

There is nothing wrong with that.  They are most certainly entitled to 
their own priorities.  So are we.  But in the end, those who do the work 
determine the priorities. 

So the best way to ensure that your priorities are accomplished on this TC 
or any other, is to step up and volunteer to do the work that is most 
important to you.

Would you have it any other way?

The $300 offer stands.
