That we can decide on our own.

Exactly. As for the "working mode", please have a look at the charter
http://www.w3.org/2011/12/mlw-lt-charter.html
"Effective participation to MultilingualWeb-LT Working Group is expected to
consume one work day per week for each participant"
That does not mean "working on MLW-LT on Monday only", but rather
"allocating each day about an hour to follow discussions, do action items,
help to resolve issues etc.". It's esp. important that the implementors use
this time to bring their experience to the working group - that experience
should drive our process.

Felix
