As one of the folks who does not have the massive amount of time 
required to participate in these important negotiations, but is 
nevertheless very interested, may I submit the following:
1.  I agree with Chris, this is a point of fundamental fairness. Slow down.
2.  As I think it was George S has said, there is never time to do it 
right, but always time to do it over.  Why not negotiate for more time 
to complete the report?
3.  I agree with many of the points that Ed Morris has recently raised, 
and am truly alarmed at all the proposed structural changes that are 
being bandied about, without really profound discussion at the community 
level.  I am afraid you are going to get a lot of comments.  Please 
allow enough time for the public to read and decipher the report, and 
draft their own thoughtful responses.

Thanks to you all for the prodigious amount of work you have done.
