Subject: reaching closure on Action

Dear Fellow Explorers,

We've had some very stimulating discussions over the past few weeks but I feel there are other things caught in limbo until we reach some consensus.  I don't think we are plagued by major disagreements but rather the different facets of complexity for the range of things we want to capture and make understandable to a wider audience.

So I think we need a plan for how to proceed.  The elements of such a plan would cover
1. capturing the different facets;
2. capturing where in the document these facets currently live;
3. work a consistent understanding that covers all the facets.

Unfortunately, this is not an 80-20 situation because a standard that only covers 80% of the scope is looking for trouble.

Now I would suggest an extended call (all day?) but I realize we are all busy and that may not be feasible.  What's more is it may not be productive unless we have all the background material together going in.  

As a precursor to an extended meeting (or even a regular meeting), is it possible for us to have a short list of questions and for the author of each section to satisfy items 1 and 2 above through the answers?  Would that be enough to help structure a productive (and hopefully not too long) call?

I haven't yet considered the questions, but figured I'd float the idea and see if someone came up with something better.
