Vikas's efforts live on in GISD.  Developing new and different ways of 
measuring Internet performance is always a win, when said method tells 
us and the consumer something useful.  Developing a sales checklist for 
ISPs is probably not the mission of the IETF.

Note that what we're doing is *COMPLETELY* unrelated to 1291 or GISD.  Seen
that hole and have successfully driven around it :-).
