I agree and support this....

Let me be a bit radical here - based on co-chairing a current W3C XG  
[1] and an IG [2]....

I suggest 1 XG focussed on "Social Networks Interoperability" - as  
this is core of the problem (and leads to addressing other  
issues....such as distributed architectures...) - and is closest to  
the pre-standardisation work that incubators were originally devised  
for.

I also suggest that the Privacy and Trust work move to the PLING [2] -  
there are already experts there - and they are also keen on Social  
Networks...
