> One is strong use case for WP/PWP/EPUB 4. If publishing industry in general do not find a strong reason to move to new specification then it may happen that only a subset of industry is using WP and other new specs. While others will continue with EPUB 3 and EPUB 2.
> 2nd is timeline, one major issue we may hit is EPUB 3.2, it will be out till end of this year, and just 1 / 1.5 years after that we will have WP/PWP/EPUB 4 coming out. How will industry perceive such rapid release of specs, would it be wise to delay WP/PWP/EPUB 4 a little so that industry is not confused. But then we will also have make sure of not loosing interest of web industry in PWG. I think we will need to clarify long term vision, and that we are addressing a part of it in 2020.
> 3rd question is about publishing membership in W3C. In case WP/PWP becomes relevant to a subset of publishing industry, then is there some effect expected on publishing membership in W3C. As per now, transitional membership ends at end of this year.
