Dear all,

This is an interesting charter tackling an important need.  I am
supportive of it.  I have a couple of comments/suggestions.

Given that the charter makes explicit reference to provenance, I think
it should also refer to the Provenance Working Group and/or PROV in
section 3. Furthermore, the Open Annotation Data Model was building on
W3C PROV. Thus, it is important that provenance-related aspects
specified by the Annotation Working Group remain compatible with PROV.
This should be part of the charter.

It would be useful to clarify which media types beyond HTML5, if any,
the proposed working intends to focus on for Robust Link Anchoring.
In the Provenance Working Group, for a short period, there were
discussions about annotations of provenance.  I am not expecting
anchoring on provenance to be in scope of this future Working Group,
but it would be nice if its anchoring model could be general enough,
to be instantiable (which implies shareable, archivable, etc) for
