Jacek,

thanks.

Without going into the details here, I have one general issue/question. 
Whenever SWEO2 starts, whatever form it takes, it will have a finite 
life, ie 2 or 3 years. My understanding is that STI2 is set up for 
longer, is that correct? If so, we should be clear on what of these 
could set up some sort of a structure more in the line of W3C-STI2 
cooperation rather than SWEO2-STI2 cooperation (and SWEO2 would then 
act, while it is around, as an executor of that cooperation). That may 
require a separate discussion with, say, Ralph involved.
