Thanks, Ian, for the question.

When we extended the working group in summer, we pre-announced a W3C workshop.  That workshop is happening in two weeks' time, and would be an appropriate venue for further discussion about the future shape of this group.

On face-to-face meetings, I anticipate that we're looking at a meeting very early next year to progress things further; most likely on the US East Coast.  As always, we'll announce the meeting 8 weeks ahead of time.  Expect more detail on that soon.

The group got an extension last time the charter was near expiration, and we did not object formally, but did raise some concerns offline. While we're trying to move towards decisions on some of the open issues, I think it's safe to say there's still a fair amount of skepticism around whether we're getting closer to producing a document that's actually going to be acceptable to enough parties that it receives wide implementation. I'd like to have a discussion on scope and figuring out how we can try to ensure some sort of successful outcome (whatever that may look like, perhaps a narrowed focus on the technical side of things / TPE) and actually discuss this as a W.G., rather than just another extension without working group discussion.
