Hi there.

I agree with that point and I would strongly suggest that the mappings  
(deliverable #3) be worded as an “effort”, that could be continued as  
part of an eventual WG rather than be a goal set for a one-year XG.

I think that C - Business Models should be scoped out of the tasks.  
Per our discussion at the conference [1], I'll be the first to  
advocate that business needs and possibilities should be extremely  
present in our minds, at all times during our work, as input — but, as  
people at the conference agreed (?), business models should probably  
not be the output of a W3C group. Maybe business models and the  
importance of business input should simply be (strongly) acknowledged  
in the preamble of the charter?

Outside of that, I'd like to recommend a name change for the XG.  
“Social Web” seems overly large and could be confusing, considering  
that our scope is really much smaller than that. Maybe “Social Data”  
or “Portable Social Data” would be more appropriate?
Alternatively, if that is indeed the full extent of our scope, we  
should definitely try to get closer to the DataPortability.org guys  
and maybe call the group “Data Portability” ; it could create some  
confusion but again, it seems to me like there are and should be a lot  
of synergies and collaboration between our respective efforts.
