Any issues with the Member agreement are limited to usages of a spec in 
a way not permitted by the W3C Document License.  So there would be 
never any issues with W3C introducing a new license; only issues if 
people don't honor such a license - which seems to be the concerns that 
Anne has raised.

Hence, it would not come up in the AC review of the WebApps charter.
