Other Comments:
- The WG has a goal of producing significant (if incomplete) results, along with running a status-update webinar, by the end of January, in order to maintain momentum.
- Overall participation continues to grow and diversify, as does the list of proposed use cases.
- We have begun to track implementation interest and resources and hope to be in a position of comparing/testing multiple independent implementations within a few months.
- In addition to revising the Core Protocol spec, the group revised the Scenarios and Use Cases document and created a new Requirements document, along with creating new explanatory materials.  In Q4 an informal proposal was also made for a claim format and request-response protocol spec, which would be referenced by the core spec.
