Likewise. I believe Opera would formally object to the charter unless it  
has such a statement.

Also:
Scope section
s/also know as the XHTML syntax/also known as the XHTML syntax/
                                         /^\

The scope should by default refer to authoring tools as agents which  
process HTML syntax.

3.2 Liaisons

In general I don't think liaisons for community groups need to be  
specified. The WHATWG is a community group specified as an external  
liaison, which makes sense, but in general since community groups can  
start and stop at any time, liaison with them should be "as appropriate".

The rest looks reasonable to me, anticipating a re-charter in a couple of  
years...

cheers
