Hm yes, I does seem I jumped to an unwarranted conclusion. I had assumed 
that we would not get an interim co-chair for just a week's absence (that 
would mean a lot of confusion around seasonal holidays, for one), and the 
announcement to the AC list did not seem to indicate that the "interim" 
period was anywhere near ending.

Hopefully clarity will be forthcoming from our W3C friends. :-)
