*My* understanding (which could very well be wrong) is that the rules
Sam laid out a while ago regarding FPWDs in this group still applies.
Write up a draft, get a total of 3(?) people to commit to reviewing it
and provide feedback, then request FPWD. But I admittedly haven't
followed the discussion regarding what's within our charter closely
enough to know if this strategy still applies.

(And for the record, I don't have time or experience to provide
technical feedback for such a draft).

That's assuming you want to publish within W3C, and in this WG. For
publishing elsewhere you'd have to follow the rules set out there.
