As the plan that I would work on editing MIX was discussed in Brussels (I sent round the plan of action) and I have been working closely with Kev, this does not seem necessary.

I can't see any core issues

Link Mauve submitted a very sensible PR with a number of changes (substantially editorial).  I accepted them, as it seemed desirable to get the changes in.   In retrospect, this was not a smart move on my part, because (as you note) we need IPR clarity (although I am confident we do not have an issue).   Kev, Link Mauve, the editorial team and I will sort this out.

We will not hold the XEP update for these comments.  I've learned my lesson!!

I will plan to update MIX based on these comments next week, when I get back from having fun with HF in Sweden this week.

As noted, my aim is to turn things round quickly so we can get wide community involvement in this spec.

Dave - thanks for the comments and have a good holiday

Best Regards
