Hi, Jaakko and Everyone:

It is nice to see that you and Mr. Kumar had a communication related to GRQ
and you have included in the contribution.

I wonder what happened to the emails that I sent to the SG16 email "public"
reflector related to MGA message! I have not seen any counter arguments
related to this in the email reflector. I like to see that MGA message is
also included (with both unicast and multicast option as suit the

I would also appreciate that you should start discussing in the email
reflector before any further update is made in the document so that we can
participate in the process for updating the document. The discussion can be
formulated as follows:

1. What you want to propose and why
2. Pros and cons of the proposals
3. Invite comments from the members
4. Update the document based on item 3

Items 1 and 2 can be formulated in a simple and concise manner (in fact you
did in many cases).

Please note that I am encouraging for updating, but defining a process how
an editor can update a contribution in absence of any contributions (or
conference calls) from any members other than the editor.

(I also plan to provide my comments on the latest document. However, I am
busy with so many works that I am yet to find time.)

Finally, I appreciate your efforts in carrying this work.

Best regards,
Radhika R. Roy
