Thank you! Who wants to help Carl?

- I agree with Alfred that it should be a separate document
that covers all ASN.1 modules in (at least) the Security Area
of the IETF.

Do you in mind a draft that provides guidance on how to convert 2002
syntax into equivalent 1988 syntax or a document that includes 88 syntax
for all security area drafts?  The former seems worthwhile, I'm not sure
about the latter.

Only the former; sorry I wasn't clearer.

- Future document authors can pick whether they want to do
their modules in 2002 or 1988 and the WGs can decide if they
like the decision that the authors made.

Allowance of 88 syntax may make an "upgrade tutorial" component of the
draft nice too.

That would certainly be useful as well.
