Steven reported that P1800 is working on closing items intended for their ballot draft.

License Management

Key Management

Rights Management

Parminder reported on additions to the proposal to cover encryption envelopes, where previous work had focussed on the decryption envelope processing. The changes are in the Control Block Management white paper. He is looking for prior art and opinions on marking the boundaries of the control block for encryption purposes.

Common Rights and Visibility

John asked for feedback on the %m use case he described before the holiday break. He will finalize a proposal shortly.

John introduced another visibility use case that arises in SystemVerlog due to the intersection of classes and dynamic data. Should a dynamic object created in a protected region be visible if it is assigned to a class handle in a non-protected region.
