I agree that until the spec is more or less stable and proven by some
real usage we should keep it in CG. However XML Core WG will be
rechartered soon and now it is good time to easily slip MicroXML into
the XML Core WG charter. So if there is general consensus in the CG that
it will be worth to put MicroXML into REC track someday it would be
easier to say it now to have this possibility open by XML Core WG charter.

Indeed very good idea. Would be anyone interested in having something
like MicroXML workshop, BOF, or whatever during the XML Prague
pre-conference day (http://www.xmlprague.cz/pre-conference-friday/)?
There will be good fraction of XML community attending so this makes
sense to me.
