One way to do this would be to write a survey style paper, which outlines the history, the different approaches taken, the need for a standard, the OHP work, and in particular OHP-nav. And which points out future directions. This stile of papers are not often seen at this conference, but in this particular instance, it makes perfect sense.

A technical briefing is still a fine thing. They have not been around for the last couple of years, but I would think that it is one of the things Uffe and John could be persuaded into.

PS. I too was impressed with the demo. I should like to be able to download the software as I would like to be able to give the demo here as well to try to show it to others.
