I thought that was the raison d'Ítre of webplatform.org. Surely we don't 
want a duplicated effort.

Bryan: that can be considered, e.g. re fitness for purpose, but AFAIK has not been discussed yet in CoreMob. But wouldn't moving stakeholder discussion to there also compete with the CG concept, and devalue it? There are also key rules/procedure differences between the CG's and webplatform.org. 

> 2) The importance of the Mobile Web App focus is not over: CoreMob 2012 was a first step, which still needs to be validated (thru testing),

AFAIK, CoreMob actually never delivered a single test in a year. It 
seems like the testing effort being driven by Robin, PLH et al. is where 
all testing related resources should focus.

Bryan: That was not its key goal, stated directly in CoreMob 2012, and only one of the ongoing needs I mentioned in that bullet (and one that FWIW I agree with you, is better focused on the broader testing effort).

> 3) A globally focused CG of this type is a more effective collaboration and communication tool: W3C needs such a CG to continue this work, otherwise we risk again not serving developers as we rush to our corners of the W3C and create myriad little CGs that developers can't find or follow. We need a central place where market stakeholders can continue to discuss/develop and promote this very important profile of the web.

OK, so CoreMob.NG's charter is Marketing. I can understand that.

Bryan: The more key message in this bullet is that a centralized CG is more effective. But certainly most everything done in W3C is in the interest of defining/serving/reaching-out to a market.
