Believe it or not, the latter and not the former. It has just taken 
too @#$% long to get the DRUMS WG to finish up and shut down. I've 
done what I can (including a couple of editorial passes on the SMTP 
document), but then it just plods along.

There have been no significant "politics" in the process, although 
certainly a lot of personalities. But everyone got real tired before 
they finished.
