But I suggest we wait until we have a really serious case for it: ie a big big player who can make a case, with real data to support it, that this is going to make a difference. Otherwise we are second guessing the need, and we may make the wrong decision. There are a few simple things I can think of doing. It's just worth waiting for the right time...

Henry,

Let's close this matter.

Only purpose our communication serves right now is that we are putting a 
suggestion on the record.

We will implement our stuff in line with our objectives. None of what we 
do is mutually exclusive relative to FOAF+SSL.
