[rpd] Cooperation re PDP update proposal

Dear co-chairs,

  As you know, PDP update discussions  at Afrinic-29  were rich and  led 
to the abandonment of the competing  proposal.

PDP-BIS authors will not support  a complete rewrite  of the proposal 
under discussion, especially from author of the withdrawn proposal, who  
changed  his  mind after supporting the proposal at Afrinic 28

The current version of PDP-BIS proposal is the fruit of community inputs 
and raise of multiple concerns. We welcome new areas of *essential* 
improvement if we have not dealt with yet.

Please, lead this process to conclusion.

Thank you.

On behalf of PDP-BIS Authors
