I tend to believe "work expands so as to fill the time available for its
completion". I agree the timelines should be adhered to. But the names
community too should be encouraged, or even compelled to complete on time,
least they go on forever. I am not sure as a separate community if we
should be discussing this though. We can leave it for ICG, and the names
community to decide.

While this is a valid point, I wonder how  ICG can ensure a consistent
proposal combining the three communities unless the final proposals are
availed and analysed together. I guess there are transition parameters that
have to be in sync.
