Re: stds-802-16: IEEE Standards Now Recognized as References for ITU-T Standards



Jim,
Good work!  We all appreciate your efforts in this area.  
I think that this should be broadcasted to other groups as well 
since this may affect several groups in the IEEE.   As 
previously discussed, this has immediate relevance to the work
in 802.3ae as well, since many of us would like to see some 
weight given to the WAN proposals.
Thanks,
Greg
