Once the group is launched and operating, yes, certainly. But for the charter we have to at least give a broad notion of the mechanisms because it feeds straight into IPR reviews.

It seems likely that it's deeply tied into application startup, lifetime, etc.  As has been mentioned, this underlying capability seems to be needed for a number of disparate APIs (alarm, push, intents, etc.).

The important thing is to list all that the group wishes to cover so that we have a defined scope for the group (focusing on IPR). After that, if the group wants to merge deliverables into a single document, split deliverables into more, put everything into one huge monster spec, etc. it's all open  that's just document engineering.
