For the record, the last URL attempt dried up because it was ahead of its
time and not seen as a priority by the group.  Without buy-in it was felt
that the definition would not be successful, so the action was taken to
defer it till a later date.  If somebody had said it was too complicated,
then that could have been discussed.  But no body did.

I know facts are boring, but that's the lot we signed up for when we went
into engineering!!!
