At the risk of sounding negative, I'd suggest the BOF also
discuss how to *remove* requirements from the cited draft.
Having looked through the document, it seems that upwards
of 30% of the listed requirements aren't specific to the
"wireless Internet" or "Mobile ISP" communities. There is
a lot of good stuff in there that qualifies as "the functionality
any good ISP would want to have". But I'd suggest taking scissors
to anything that isn't specifically a unique requirement to support
mobility or roaming. (e.g. much of the text relating to security,
authentication, accounting, etc isn't really unique...) You'll
end up with a more focussed document that will make it easier to
explain to the rest of the IETF what MORE is trying to contribute.
