The current consensus and list of open issues need to be presented in
an organized fashion. Few people have the time or energy to wade back
through months of mailing-list archives. I looked at most of the wiki,
the entire faq, and some of the list archives and found only bits here
and there touching on my issues. No doubt many of them were covered at
one time or another, but I (and other newcomers) have no good way to
find out.

Eventually, of course, all this information needs to get pulled into
reasonably formal specs that can be peer-reviewed and presented to
policymakers. Perhaps the identification of issues and the description
of each one's status could be the first step in writing those specs.


P.S. Who's Chito?
