I think we don't need more than one for now.

I'm not sure about normative or not. I think I prefer non-normative.  
Given the challenges so far due to many in the group not used to W3C  
process and way of work, I'd prefer not to bother participants more  
than necessary unless we as a group see big benefit in going normative.

Some ideas I have in mind for future work:
* Stay as one group, consider TFs as needed
* Fully align group deliverables with group members' and stakeholders  
interests
   + need to get commitment from start
   + avoid start working on something nobody will lead
* Focus on less topics
   + my favorite: OGD
* Produce more and smaller documents
   + W3C examples I like much
     * QA Website quality docs
         http://www.w3.org/QA/Library/#websitequality
     * TAG findings
         http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/findings
* Release soon, release often, open for review as soon as possible
* Keep Education and Outreach in mind
   + maybe also a separate set of docs?
* Setup more and stronger liaisons with W3C Groups
   + they hold the expertise we should reuse

I'm eager to hear what others have in mind. I would be also happy to  
go into more detail wrt OGD related docs.

Best,
Jose.
