Without any doubt this proposal is challenging and will require
significant amount of work, its cool and professional. By the way the
rules say the final proposal has to be plain-text, so maybe you would
like to change this.
However what worries me is that there still hasn't been a descision
about which closure type will be choosen and saying that BGGA is the
preferred closure implementation is a bit canting - 42.7% favoured
BGGA and 37.7% said they don't want any closure implementation.
So what I fear is that this will end up with an completly implemented
closure specification which will be choosen just because its already
If BGGA is the best or not, it could also lead to some angry voices
arguing that BGGA did it just because it took part at the challenge
and that it "bypassed" the JCP this way.
Please don't get me wrong, I like your proposal and the way its done
... its just a very hot topic.
Furthermore I have to admit that I am not viewless when it comes to
closures (I have a general opinion, I don't favour any
implementation), so my opinion may be too very politic or I am biased.
