I see that there have been a few changes in the past day to the Social Web
XG charter [1].

In the past few minutes the scope of the XG in the charter has been updated
to include the following sentence "We will focus on a number of different
topics, including but not limited to: Accessibility, Internationalization,
Social Data Portability, Privacy and Trust, Business Practices, and mapping
the general landscape for future standardization."

This update (a significant change) is a step in the the right direction. 

What about adding this section from charter [2] to charter [1]:

The mission of the XG is to:

    * properly frame the questions which need to be asked/answered about
social networking/social web usage and management in an open
multidisciplinary forum,
    * to conduct rigorous research leading to documentation (mappings) on
current open issues and future problems identified by the members of this
forum,
    * to debate the architectural strategies and even philosophical
ramifications of particular strategies,
    * to prototype possible solutions to present and/or anticipated
challenges, and
    * to publish reports to the W3C members and/or the public at large on
the challenges the XG is mandated to examine. 

Note that this does not settle the matter of Task Forces.

Thanks,

Christine
