In that case, you wouldn't mind if I request publication of the rest of those documents?

For the record, I didn't say that "keywrap" is out of scope, I said that our draft is out of scope.

Is that a WG document? Or are we to assume that anything one of the Chairs proposes is automatically in scope? Or maybe keywrap magically became in scope when Bernard included it in a draft? The interesting questions are how this scope change occurred w/o a change in the charter and whether the ADs share your opinion on this reversal.

Perhaps it also captured the fact that the conversation was an offer of cooperation by myself and his "take it to the list" response was in the nature of a rather curt rebuff to that offer.

What issues would those be? The only one I recall is the one raised again by Hannes, which is patently out of scope.

Every indication is that _our draft_ is considered to be unacceptable by the chairs. Bernard undoubtedly had reasons to ignore work by WG members that had been in progress for more than a year at the in favor of proposing a novel scheme but I, at least, am not privy to them.
Hope this helps,
