That would be one that gets chartered as a result of a
good proposal with a reasonable liklihood of resulting
in success both in terms of RFCs being produced and
getting implemented and deployed, and where there are
enough folks with relevant clue interested. (If someone
has such a proposal feel free to contact me or Sean.)

In the meantime there is the wpkops working group [1]
who are trying to document the current web pki and how
that differs from e.g. RFC 5280 and who could do with
help in that. That's not really a pre-requisite to new
web pki developments, but it would be excellent if
such developments were based on the deployed reality
(with all its flaws) as a realistic starting point,
which is what the wpkops group are trying to capture.
