> I agree that we’ll effectively have language moratorium until we have a new governance structure.  But let me ask, what do you propose to do about PEP 572?  That’s already been accepted, but not yet implemented.  Would it be exempt from the moratorium or scoot in under the wire?

That is a tough question. :)  I meant a moratorium for new decisions and
subsequent changes, so I kind of assumed PEP 572 would go in.
