I understand your concern, but check out the charter [1] which to me clearly states that AR work should occur in this working group, but is separate from the core POI Recommendation. 

I've been operating under the assumption that an AR extension to the core is also part of the mandate of this working group, and should start right about now that we've got 90% of the core done. Building the AR extension before the core is final allows AR to influence the core.

I defer to the chairs on process, but it would seem that teleconferences could begin to take on a heavy AR flavor if the core work is done.

Some other extensions we could consider are navigation and entertainment.
