Sounds all good to me. Yves and all: maybe you could edit directly in 
the wiki would you have in mind for new features, at (or linked from)
http://www.w3.org/International/its/wiki/IssuesAndProposedFeatures

I would propose that we publish a working group note at some point to 
document the new features we are having in mind. That document could 
also mention the new namespace. What do you think? Any volunteers for 
editing?

Felix
