The document wraps too much into a single spec. VOQL has been split out but
this doc still contains Open SkyQuery Portal which is inappropriate as an
IVOA standard; we do not need a portal standard. Even if we did, it should
not be included in the SkyNode spec.

If you have comments (objections) to this document, please circulate your
comment(s) to our mail exploder list (voql at ivoa.net). If I see no major
objections before 0000 hours ,January 24th, (GMT), I will forward this
document to the IVOA executive committee for their approval.
Because I received no major objections to our another working document on
the SkyNode (the document is SkyNodeInterface-0.5.pdf), I would like to
approve the SkyNode document in our group.
If you agree with me (or you show no objections to do so), I would like to
send two documents to the IVOA executive committee as proposed
Any comments ?
