	Thanks. I'd also like to thank Geoff, Jason, Vijay, Ted,
	and everyone to participated in the BOF. I found the
	session to be quite productive, and I hope that it will
	form the foundation for an ongoing dialog. The IAB is
	hoping to do the next IAB "BOF" at APRICOT, so with any
	luck, see you all there.  

	Thanks again all,
