Bijan - in the interest of bringing things to the mailing lists 
instead of blog wars (which actually seem to have better Google 
karma, but never mind) - you put the following as deliverables for a 
potential WG

Deliverables

     * Syntax and Semantics (S&S)
     * Outreach material
           o update/diff//what the wg decides
           o New material (e.g., tractable fragments)
     * Test Suite

this reveals one difference - I am not interested in elucidating the 
many tractable fragments, that's not a WG activity in my opinion - 
I'd be interested in identifying one particular tractable fragment, 
naming it, and getting it into note or rec form

to show where we are at the moment - the attached (HTML table) 
reflects where some of us have been playing - comments welcome
