The current thinking is to take some quotes from charters
and such and hand it to the taskforce for them to salt to taste for
maybe three weeks. The quotes are all in a mail message from May...

I think Chris Lilley has the ball on that; stay tuned for
mail to public-forms-tf.

I'd like to think so, yes. We might be low on neutral parties.
The idea of bumping it up from 3-per-wg to 5-per-wg is a possibility
I'm willing to look into of the current TF members mostly like
that idea... especially if there are particular people nominated.
