    It is in no way mandatory to submit proposals to the UTC prior to their
    submission to WG2 – in fact they could come to the UTC via WG2.

    However, since the UTC meetings precede the WG2 meetings, it would greatly
    ease and expedite the process in WG2 if the proposals, especially the more
    complex ones, would already have been scrutinized by the UTC experts. The
    required expertise may not be readily available in the WG2 meeting.

    Do proposals now need to be submitted to the UTC for consideration
    before they are submitted to WG2??

    If so, I find this problematic. One problem is that UTC documents are
    not publicly available the way that WG2 are.
