Right. Which IMHO is more important than keeping this particular CG alive  
- the goal is to improve the Web, not to maintain some particular group or  
other just because it used to be useful.

I'm not so sure that there is no more point in Coremob. We need  
documentation and we need tests and we need specs, but we don't need to do  
any of those things ourselves. The value I see is in generating and  
justifying use cases by looking at what real developers are trying to do  
without dividing the efforts across different working groups. The use  
cases can thus be used effectively as input to all three of the activities  
we don't do here...

I'm not sure that it is a bug, and I am not sure if it needs to be fixed.  
But it might be worth looking at if it implies there is a real problem in  
getting resources more efficiently allocated.

Sure.
