Its a good question to ask  my feeling is that having the WG give its
approval would help in giving a positive indication to a larger
community.

 but I can't help to think that more grassroots efforts are required
to tell the story of microxml to the wider community.

I would rather handover to the WG the moment we start getting some
kind of uptake with microxml, let the community at large push for WG
approval/consideration by voting with their adoption versus some
automatic reaction.

So  perhaps we are putting the cart before the horse by considering
WG escalation first, perhaps the next step is some kind of noise about
microxml, how to use it, where to use it, tutorials, etc.

thoughts ?
