sPHENIX modest forward upgrade LOI

The charge from ALD Berndt Mueller concerning material for the 2017 Nuclear and Particle Physics program advisory committee included this:

In addition, I invite the STAR and sPHENIX Collaborations to present letters of intent for proposals of modest forward upgrades to their detectors for data taking after 2021.

Following extensive discussions organized through the sPHENIX cold QCD topical group by co-conveners Christine Aidala and Nils Feege, a writing group was assembled to detail physics arguments and a detector concept with a rough cost estimate.  The draft letter of intent (LOI) was circulated to the collaboration for comment.  The resulting final LOI is linked below.
