It would be useful to have the term "installable Web apps" in this document

Also, technically, this group doesn't need a charter. Nor does any
Community Group. A scope statement is sufficient. The Community Group
option is intentionally meant to be lightweight in terms of process, and
for it to be fine to a CG to operate without a charter -- not feel like
they are obligated to have one.

So in order to avoid setting a precedent for more heavyweight process creep
into CG work, I personally would prefer that this document not be called a
"charter", but instead something more like, say, "operating guidelines" or
