I just scanned the HCG's draft charter 
<http://www.w3.org/2011/02/HCG/charter.html> and have some comments:

1. The WAF and WebAPI WGs were closed two years ago. As such, please 
delete them from the HCG and replace them with an entry for WebApps, e.g.:

[[
<dt class="public"><a href="http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/">Web 
Applications Working Group (WebApps)</a></dt>

<dd>The mission of the Web Applications (WebApps) Working Group is to 
provide specifications that enable improved client-side application 
development on the Web, including specifications both for application 
programming interfaces (APIs) for client-side development and for markup 
vocabularies for describing and controlling client-side application 
behavior. </dd>
]]

2. Given there is no longer any direct work between OMA and W3C, remove 
OMA from the list of liaisions. If there is no active liaison work 
between W3C and 3GPP and OASIS, perhaps they should also be deleted.

3. Given ECMA's interest in Web IDL, add ECMA to the list of External 
Groups.

4. Rather than explicitly identify some of the W3C Groups as "(Public)" 
(and some are missing that tag such as WebApps), perhaps tagging should 
just go the hopefully very small set of WGs that are still Private/Member.

5. Change the following text in the Communication section as follows so 
it is consistent with the CG's Public Confidentiality designation:

s/This group primarily conducts its work on the Member-only mailing list 
w3c-html-cg@w3.org (archive)./This group primarily conducts its work on 
the Public mailing list public-hypertext-cg@w3.org (archive)./
