The Process CG does not have an implication in its title that we have no process.

If the CG had been called “Process-guided W3C” that would imply that it’s currently not, and I would have objected just the same.


This group was created hastily, without any consultation — not even an email to the AB or AC saying “I am thinking that a new CG along the following lines would help”.  Perhaps I need to suggest a CG “Teamwork and Communication CG” to encourage people to socialize ideas before they act on them?
