Peter (L.):

I don't believe that you would get any disagreement here. As you well
know (you were there), the IEPG has also decided to broaden its scope
to a more comprehensive Internet picture, all service providers, and
so, while likely encouraging regionalization into focus groups for
specific areas (like EEPG, whatever_PFord_called_the_US_group_this_time,
perhaps some pacific area equivalent, and so). On more complex issue
of matters that have to be discussed at multiple levels (like the GIX
concept), components likely belong on the plate of multiple groups.
