Subject: Re: [security-services] FW: [chairs] Updating SpecificationStatus after ballots

I'll admit that I don't fully understand all this or what the implications
to us are.  However, I don't believe that we have any "Designated
Cross-Reference Changes" so best I can tell, this just means less work for
editors.  But, like I said, I don't really know so it probably does warrant
a little discussion on the call tomorrow.  If there's confusion, we can ask
for clarification from Mary.
