.. Nit-pick: Feb 21st is placed before Feb 13th. :)

A Community Group sounds good to me. As others have said, most of the
API is orthogonal to serializations (and reasonably dependent on the
RDF 1.1 work for the abstract syntax). There are certainly various
relations to RDFa (for the DOM aspects), to microdata (cf. [1]) and
JSON-LD (regarding e.g. projections/contexts/terms, and normalization
etc.). And in general, every RDF library implementor is a stakeholder
in this.

+1. Sounds like a good plan.
