OK, thanks for that feedback; based on this, and since nobody seems to
be opposed to adding that item, I've added it to the draft charter:
http://www.w3.org/2009/05/DeviceAPICharter.html#deliverables

At this point, the charter seems to be getting fairly stable; in other
words, if anyone would like to add or modify anything in the charter,
they should let this list know very soon :)
