This is nonsense. The chapter was committed to sf as a preliminary draft
in august 06. It has never, so far as I know, been presented to Council
for consideration until now. I don't remember being asked to comment on
it in september 2005, but if I were it would have been a bit pointless
since Andreas' draft didn't even exist at that time.
As for its being part of P5 in previous releases: that's really a bad
mistake. It should have had (as it did in P4) a clear health warning
saying that it was undergoing revision.

There have been REPEATED requests from me to ask whether it was ready
yet. There have been no comments on the chapter from anyone till now
because you have repeatedly said that you were still working on it!

I deny ever having been given a ball to drop.
