No, it is not. It does not seem realistic to me. We
would clearly have the nonblocking collectives ready
but I don't think much else would be. I think we could
have a LITTLE of the tools stuff ready. From what I
have seen, I doubt other WGs will get beyond that...

I think a "consensus" at a meeting with minimal attendance
is not much of a consensus. I don't personally have a stake
in this buut I think it does not make sense to rush to a
version 3.0 that does not make much of an advance.
