Dear Sarmad,

thanks for getting back and the helpful clarification. The Integration 
Panel is interested in having such discussions. At this point, it early 
for the Integration Panel so it would be premature to expect a 
solidified "IP perspective" on variant issues, because the Integration 
Panel has mainly focused on repertoire (MSR-1) up to this point. From 
that aspect, the timing isn't overly fortuitous, but at the same time, 
the discussion has to start somewhere.

On another note, we are interested in structuring the interaction with 
the various Generations panels in a way that allows our advisors to 
participate, mainly with the intent of enabling them to hear the 
Generation Panel positions without filtering, and allowing them to use 
questions etc. to gain a more solid understanding of the nuances of the 
issues under discussion. This, we feel, would improve their 
effectiveness as advisors to the Integration Panel.

As for the logistics of the upcoming meeting, I would like to take that 
part of the discussion offline. Staff or I will contact you after we 
discuss this some more tomorrow.
