It's been a week, and not even one word has been uttered on the WG
mailing list.  I'm reminded of the closing words in Barbara Fraser's
message of 6 June asking us to get this stuff done:

% I feel like we're living in Ground Day with these MIB docs. We
% keep living the same thing over and over. Let's please get to
% the end :-)

I think that the silence very eloquently states that there is no
further interest in these MIB modules.  In the interest of allowing
John to get on with the edits to the doi-tc MIB, will the chairs
please make a ruling that these MIB modules are abandoned owing to
lack of WG interest?
