Slipping, Slipping, Slipping into the future

It looks like we might want to hold off on that order of 802.11n gear. Rumor has it that the task force is way behind the ratification schedule, and have considerably more comments (12,000) than they expected.
From Wi-fi networking news:

An IEEE member informed me that the Task Group N schedule has slipped considerably: The group received 12,000 comments on the Draft 1.0 proposal that was accepted as a working draft in March, and which failed to achieve in May anywhere near the 75 percent required (it received under 50 percent) to make it a final draft that would head to ratification. What wasn’t expected is that instead of perhaps 2,000 comments on the draft, a typical occurrence after drafts are sent around for review by IEEE voting members, 12,000 comments came in.
