As the number of question marks, exclamation marks, asterisks and other forms
of expressing digital shock and awe increase with each mail, I would like to
suggest a temporary cease and desist policy with respect to responding to JFC
until the chair chimes in, presumably after the holidays.

The discussion doesn't seem to be headed towards consistent understanding of
the policies and the discussion is no longer shedding much additional light.

JFC's mails deserve a response, (of which there have been several) but now we
are down a hole from which I do not see an end short of the chair clarifying
definitively the policies and either rejecting or supporting the objections.

The commentary doesn't seem to be affecting 3066bis at this point and probably
won't unless the chair directs the authors to do something specifically...

To the extent the discussion is taking time away from the finalizing of -09 or
other issues, it is delaying something that  most have declared as needed asap.
To the extent it may be causing reviewers to tune out of 3066bis discussion, it
is also harmful.

If there is are specific technical issues, they should continue to be

My two cents.
Wishing everyone a happy and productive 2005, whereever you are in 001 land.
