I don't think that the IETF needs to do anything at all before we have
finalized this issue!
The process is based on consensus. That does not mean that we all need to
share the same opinion. We also don't need to share Michael's opinion in
everything for this to work properly.
I will close the issue of Hawaiian now, and I will shortly submit a proposal
for a ballot to be circulated by Infoterm.

Then you (and I hear this from both representatives of the
"terminology camp") are saying you really are more interested in
principle than in practical preservation of data, and that we can
just go and stuff the agreement you have made. That being the case,
it seems that we in IETF will have to make other arrangements for
internet language tagging.
