I'll make a note to bring this up at the POC meeting.  As far as the CGL Spec or POC tracking list, my understanding is that it's okay to leave projects, such as Linux-HA, that don't implement the full requirement as references.  In the POC tracking list, the "gap analysis" column is used to define which projects will/won't implement the full requirement.

I'll bring up what you suggest:  "Do we have a viable option in the CGL 2.0 timeframe for the requirement as it is worded?  What about if the requirement were more generic?"
