Hi Glen,

With respect to 'fast tracking' of PWG Raster spec, note
that the status phases Initial/Interim/Protoype/Stable must
occur, per PWG Process/3.0.

Except for waiving the PWG Process/3.0 requirement
for a PWG Last Call to span a PWG face-to-face, there
is little the PWG Steering Committee can do to 'fast
track' this spec.

And during the Prototype phase an actual prototype of
substantial amounts of the base spec must be performed,
reported on, and reviewed by the IPP WG.

For comparison, PDF/is had *every* required and
optional field prototyped.  Wire formats need to be
very stable before adopting them.

I can't speak to Mike Sweet's editing priorities, but the
main IPP Everywhere (profiles) and IPP JPS3 specs
are high priority for their Cloud Imaging WG and MFD
WG impacts.
