Thats fine by me.

However, I seem to remember that the Xiph commnity works by rough concensus.

So, the people working on OggPCM2 are Jean-Marc, Silvia, Conrad, Zen, Mike
Smith, John Koleszar and myself. We have had considerable discussion on
this issue via email. I am willing to provide the whole set of email
(currently over 25 emails) to anyone who thinks that what we are working
on is not a work of concensus.

Excluding the people above working on OggPCM2, who, other than you is working on

Your effort seems to be a team of one. The OggPCM2 team has seven members.
