First of all YES we really sure what we are trying to organize !
Second, Mark Elkins is on of the co-authors of many other proposals - as he claimed -, the one you particularly mention is not an active proposal for the time being
Third, as we stated we welcome any volunteer to contribute to solve the issues we addressed in our justifications to our call,
Please help us to focus only on ideas and proposals.
