This TC is open and welcomes they join this TC.
I hope they decide to join this TC, rather than
creating another standard in other organization.
Then we can discuss how we update a spec together.

Interesting discussion. However it looks like better to go on in the more
appropriate list unless someone is eager to discuss it in this list.
