I guessed by November in the advance notice.

Thanks, W3C team (likely me) should chat with these potential chairs. If
we hear other interest in leading the work, we'd talk with those people
as well. We want to find a chairing team who can work together
effectively and find consensus among the work's stakeholders. Based on
experience, I've found it more effective to have two co-chairs, unless
there's a clear division of roles that warrants more.
