I would be supportive of extending this. It sounds like the benefits were made 
evident in your recent review of CPS documents and we hope others will also 
feel the same.

Thanks for continuing to push on this, Ben.

>From our point of view, this is a huge change. It's probably a good one (as 
discussed during the F2F, this could be tremendously helpful). But it's going 
to take a lot of careful review for us to cross-check the CP Review WG's work, 
in part because I can't seem to find public archives that might be able to 
answer questions.

Because of this, I'm not sure if we'll be able to complete the review by the 
time the ballot closes. If that happens, we may decide to vote against it, 
simply on the "needs more time", even though, as discussed during the F2F, I 
think we'd be quite supportive of this effort (having reviewed several CA's 
CP/CPS this week, I certainly found myself using the draft as a helpful crib 

Since we haven't really looked closely at this until the discussions at the 
most recent F2F, would you and the cosponsors be willing to delay starting 
this ballot by a week (or two), and/or seek to extend the review period? This 
is probably the single largest change the Forum has ever proposed, and I want 
to make sure it gets the due attention it deserves, while also not delaying it 
indefinitely for "more review".

Would that be something you would be OK with?
