Sure, will remove it.

That's good.  The presence of those columns makes the proposal a bit of a moving target --
either we edit them as we make progress on the unacceptable dependencies or the document becomes
out of date.   I will remove them and start a separate, active document to track progress.

Yes, Will and Sheng are both influential.   Will does engineering management at Citrix and
so has input on the day-day activities of many of the initial committers.  Sheng provides
input on longer term direction for the project based on his observations across the industry.
 Both will have opinions on how the project should be run.
