My impression from the overall number of last call comments that I have 
seen is that many people started with definitions and protocol, and some 
of them got to tables and/or bidi, but most didn't make it to mappings 
and/or rationale. That was definitely my own personal experience.

One consequence one could take from this is to move on with 
defs/protocol/tables/bidi as quickly as possible, while trying to set up 
another review period for rationale and mappings. This grouping at least 
to me seems somewhat natural in that the first four together define the 
core protocol, whereas mappings and rationale are ancillary.

Just an idea, I'll leave the decision up to the chair.

Regards,   Martin.
