I have updated the _DRAFT_ :-) charter, essentially using Ashok's text. I also removed the explicit out of scope mention of ACL, I guess Ashok's text covers it.

There are too many examples of WGs that tried to tackle too much at once and as a result go on for years without producing any recommendations.

We should take the approach of defining different levels, or profiles, that build on each other, similar to what we did with the DOM or WS profiles, so that we can produce smaller specs we can take advantage of sooner rather than later.
