To put on the record what I said this morning -- and my apologies for not doing that earlier, and for not having said it in the meeting before we communicated it to the W3C membership overall:

1. At the W3C management meeting on 30 January, the group was extended with a new schedule all the way to Recommendation.   The reason for the extension was simple.  In late 2012, we brought in Peter Swire as co-chair, with support from a broad set of stakeholders.  The work plan that underlies the charter extension is consistent with providing the new co-chair a reasonable length of time to get the compliance spec to Last Call.  The charter extension has the goal of going to Last Call in July, and runs through April 2014 to allow a normal amount of time to deal with the other process steps.

2. At the same meeting, the TPE PAG was extended through 30 June 2013.

Since there were some questions about the background for the extension:  When we previously extended the group through 31 January 2013, we pre-announced a workshop for fall 2012, where we created the opportunity for discussion about possible changes to the charter. That workshop occurred in Berkeley, and did not result in consensus for particular charter changes.

And while we aim for our WGs to get better at sticking to schedules, extensions are still a routine matter of W3C work.

PS: The staff involved with this work certainly hope not to be in the same WG meetings a year from now!
