  We are soliciting comments and proposals from the community to guide
the process and the goals. Our desire is that the community can come to
consensus by the end of the calendar year with a vision of supporting
users and developers.

With all due respect to the steering committee, I would have felt a lot
better about this

a) if the solicitations for .. proposals had occurred first

b) announcement of intent would be later and be contingent or some sort
of consensus on a particular proposal.

As it reads - it sounds like a decision has been made to .... what exactly?
