I haven't thought much about Web annotations since I worked on Annotea 
many years ago [anyone remember that project? ;-)]. As such, if you'll 
please PTI, I have a couple of `newbie` Qs:

* I'm looking for a bit of context regarding: the relationships between 
the proposed deliverables,  perhaps some type of a high level 
"architecture" of what the draft charter calls the "annotation 
ecosystem"; who are the various players and actors in a standardized 
"annotation system"; what is the relevant prior art for each of the 
deliverables. Where can I find some of this type of info?

* I noticed the draft charter has commented-out the "Success Criteria" 
section (a mandatory part of a _formal_ charter proposal). Would you 
please expand on your expectations here? For example Industry vs. 
Research vs. OSS projects participation; participation by browser 
vendors;  participation by content and CMS providers.

A few nits re the W3C groups list:

* Given the proposed Client-side API deliverable, please add Web 
Applications WG (with text like "To review client-side APIs")

* For the Privacy IG, suggested text is "To review specifications for 
privacy issues."

* I would also add the Web Security IG with text like "To review 
specifications for security issues."

-Thanks, AB
