stds-802-16: Published: Development Plan for 802.16.3 Air Interface Standard

Title: Development Plan for 802.16.3 Air Interface Standard -
        Task Group Revision

Document Number: IEEE 802.16.3-00/03r2

I feel the need to comment on this one, because I think this plan is 
too slow. With people breathing down our necks in this area, I don't 
think we have the luxury of waiting until next March to hear our 
first proposals. If this standard is going to make an impact, we need 
to get going. I think that TG3 should be looking at PHY proposals 
this November, or January at the latest.

On the MAC side, remember that everyone in 802.16 is going to be 
balloting on 802.16.1. There is every opportunity to make sure that 
this MAC fits all of our needs. Once it does, TG3 can focus on 
driving to a PHY draft.
