If you think the HTML WG violated its charter in adopting a particular  
forms spec as its basis for review (note, not a final document), then  
I guess you should take it up with the HTML WG Co-Chairs. I do not  
believe the case, but I am not sure it is worth debating within the  
context of the Forms TF. You may wish to indicate to them which part  
of the HTML WG Charter you feel is violated: <http://www.w3.org/2007/03/HTML-WG-charter.html
