Yes, I'll do my best to chair, although I don't have the full group
state swapped into my brain.

Makes sense.   I think today's breakout telecon sorted out a solution
with potential to be acceptable to those of us in attendance; we should
know via email before the meeting.  

Does this WG normally allow editorial fixes AFTER the WG decision?  Some
groups do this.  I know I found several typos in Graphstore yesterday
that I haven't even had a chance to send in yet.  They're not
showstoppers, but it would be nice to get them fixed before publication.
In some WG's, we approve publication, pending certain changes being made
to the satisfaction of certain named parties.

We're already into a publication moratorium [1].   So the next possible
publication date is Jan 2.   (That would be cool: 20120102)   So, I'd
revise this goal as: doing what we need to do before Christmas, for a
Jan 2 publication.

Looks reasonable.   Slight rephrasing, aiming for a little more
procedural precision:

        The SPARQL WG welcomes reports of implementations, sent to the
        comments address.  If we gather sufficient evidence of
        interoperable implementations, the group may request to skip its
        <a href="http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr#cfi">Call
        for Implementations (Candidate Recommendation)</a> drafts and
        have the next round of publications be  <a
        href="http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr#cfr">Proposed Recommendations</a>.
