PGP would be strongly supportive of including an ECC draft
within the charter of the WG. While we do not support ECC now,
the lack of a draft certainly does not help any potential for
supporting it in the future.

I've requested Dominikus edit his draft to conform to IETF
guidelines, and resubmit it as a personal draft. Currently,
further specification of ECC is not part of our charter,
although it might be necessary in order for elliptic curves to
be useful within OpenPGP.
Once his draft has been accepted as I-D, I would like your
opinions on whether is should be included as a WG item. Are
implementers utilizing ECC in their implementations?
I've asked Dominikus to elaborate his reasons to the WG for
including his draft within our charter, once his draft has been
accepted as an I-D. Please give his note and his draft careful
