Art read the document a particular way, which prompted me to call him  
to chat. I clarified that the proposal amounts to:

  * A single starting point for new ideas
  * Lightweight groups for ideas with traction
  * Standards groups for those proposals requiring stability, IPR  
commitments from orgs, etc.

I continue to edit and will send a ping tomorrow afternoon.
