Thanks, Russ.  That word "necessary" elicited some interesting feedback.

With regards to making "a new format available", I think this reflects
the ongoing confusion regarding which format we're talking about
changing.  I read your statement as your understanding of a community
desire to make additional rendered formats available more than community
desire to make a single revised canonical format available.  Did I
understand that correctly?

Any changes made will not happen in one fell swoop, so I don't know if
I'll hit the "fairly soon" mark in anyone's minds or not.  Actually, I'm
pretty sure I will totally miss the mark with some, be fine with others,
and so on.  I will certainly continue to move as quickly as seems
reasonable, taking in to account what both the RFC Editors and the
communities of interest can handle.
