Jose, you said: "... one of the main Group's goals [is] to make W3C better
speak in government terms ..."

In the U.S., that is the essence of the purpose of the Federal Enterprise
Architecture (FEA) reference models, i.e., to establish the terms and
categories by which agencies are supposed to consider IT investments:

As far as W3C Recommendations are concerned, the FEA Technical Reference
Model (TRM) is most relevant: http://xml.gov/stratml/crane/FEATRM.xml

Relatively few of the W3C's Recommendations are currently included in the
TRM: http://www.xml.gov/draft/W3CRecommendationsFEATRM.pdf 

Proposed changes to the FEA models are due by January 12 for consideration
in the FY 2011 budget cycle.
