Hi Ivan, 
STI2 is indeed set up for the long term, and the cooperation should also
be planned to last. Of all the points raised, only these below (slightly
rephrased) seem to keep being applicable also after closing any and all
SWEO groups:

      * W3C (and related) experts should be included in STI2 Expert DB. 
      * W3C and STI2 could co-organize training events and summer
        schools. Whenever appropriate, STI2 would let the W3C know about
        its event planned events and W3C could join in; and potentially 
        vice versa. 
      * W3C could consider participation in STI2-organized conferences
	such as ESWC, ASWC, ESTC etc., even to the extent of a W3C 
	track, for instance. 
      * W3C/SWEO2 could help form the STI2 certification programs, and 
	then the W3C could consider officially embracing ("blessing")
	such programs, including continued participation.

>From our side, higher-level discussions would likely need to involve 
Elena as well.

Best regards,
Jacek
