While the formalities are up to Vint, that is, from my point of
view, exactly the reason for posting -15.  If the Bidi issue (as
it effects Protocol) is resolved in a clear enough way for me to
know what text to change, I'm happy to post another interim
version for comment, but that change should be fairly isolated
if one is made at all.

You will be able to guess which set of versions I think are
ready for IETF Last Call when versions appear with the anchors
removed and the Section numbers in cross-references appear.
But, again, that will be just my opinion: I don't make that
judgment; Vint does.
