I have spoken with the other two authors (Mark Taylor and Jia-Bing
Cheng) and we have a consensus amongst us that at this time we should
go ahead with the immediate publication of ESRO ID as an Informational

The urgency for publication in this case outweighs our interest in
getting this document on the standards track.

However, I am very interested in getting the next version of ESRO on
the standards track.  In addition, we also have been working on
another protocol that uses ESRO which I believe represents enough of a
technical contribution to merit being put on the standards track as
well. I am hoping to have them ready for submission as RFCs-to-be by
the end of next month.

Again, thank you for all your help with this.
