The internal feedback I received supports C (gap analysis) and D (esp. 
responsive design).

Re the IG vs. CG debate, the TL;DR version is our preference is to morph 
this CG into the "Web and Mobile Interest Group".

The relatively broad set of topics proposed for the group's scope is 
consistent with other IG charters (f.ex. Web & TV IG), whereas CGs tend 
to be a bit more narrowly scoped. IGs also have a lower barrier for all 
participants, provided the group's list is self-subscribe-able by 
non-Members. Additionally, IGs cannot create specifications or 
Recommendation but rather WG "Notes". This eliminates the confusion 
caused by CGs like CoreMob that [misleadingly] include the term 
"Specification" in their document titles. [BTW, that bug really should 
be fixed for the CoreMob 2012 document i.e. s/Specification/Report/.]

Lastly, I believe the only people that have actually agreed to do any 
work here are Jo and Dom and since they prefer IG, we should certainly 
consider their preference.
