Dear Vint and all,

I'd like to know in detail why the editors, the chair and the AD couldn't 
satisfied with current mappings document.  If the reason was not cleared, 
mappings document couldn't be go forward.

Even if mappings document is informational, the publication of the document 
as RFC is very important to keep backward compatibility and interoperability 
between current systems.
