Hi Jim,

I also had some misgivings about this, but you will note that the  
charter says that the WG does not *plan* to have f2f meetings, not  
that it can't have them. The idea is that if the work of the WG can  
be accomplished without f2f meetings, it will save considerable  
resources both for participants and for the W3C.

My recollection of the WebOnt WG is that it was perfectly possible to  
get work done without f2f meetings, but that they were useful for  
resolving more contentious issues. If such issues arise, then it may  
be necessary to ask for a f2f meeting; the (possibly naive) hope is  
that that it will not be necessary.

Ian
