What motivates the IG in the first place is how diverse policy
languages and requirements interact and can be combined; I'd hope
that that's clear from the charter.

You seem to have a specific wording proposal in mind.  Mind
proposing some concrete edits to the text?

My current take is that the scope as outlined in the present draft
covers the points that you want to discuss.  I certainly can't come
up with an example for something that would be deemed in scope
according to the your remarks, and out of scope according to the
current text.

(Bear in mind that this is the charter for an *Interest* Group, not
a Working Group; the purpose here is to provide a platform for
community building and discussion that might at some point in the
future lead to actual standardization work.)
