Hi Harry, et al

Yes, this is exactly how we would like to handle the participation at  
the Social Web XG.  We will grant Public Invited Expert status to  
almost anyone who applies, securing this way a broad participation but  
at the same time allowing the Chairs to clearly identify the level of  
commitment.

Public Invited Experts do not have access to Member resources.  This  
should not be a problem since per charter, you are planning to conduct  
your work in public, i.e. using public-xg-socialweb@w3.org and  
archived in public space [1].

Best,

Mauro
