Yes, at least sort of.

Our charter gives us a certain amount of time; in particular, it 
allocates a certain amount
of W3C staff resource ("one engineer at 25% for the duration of the 
Working Group",
i.e. thru Q3 2007). We can't unilaterally change our charter, but if we 
have a good
case, we can ask The Director to change our charter, with notice to the 
W3C membership.

"To extend a Working Group or Interest Group charter with no other 
substantive modifications, the Director announces the extension to the 
Advisory Committee. The announcement MUST indicate the new duration, 
which MUST NOT exceed the duration of the Activity to which the group 
belongs. The announcement MUST also include rationale for the extension"
http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/groups.html#charter-extension

Any request we make for more staff resources competes with lots of other 
requests.
I encourage the WG to wrap up pretty soon.
