I reviewed [1] a recent document [2] was published under Process 2005 [3].

I'm troubled by this. The MMI Charter [4] is apparently* from 2015
[5], and it points to the general Process [6] not Process 2005 [3].

I have a few asks:
1. Can we ask that Charters include a `Start Date` along with an `End Date`?
2. Can the Start/End Date section also include a `Previous Charter`
link? -- currently it's buried in Charter Prose.
3. Can the notifier/team somewhat actively police WGs trying to
publish their first FPWD of their current charter after the new
Process has been established? (Especially for groups [like MMI] that
don't explicitly say they plan to operate under the old charter).
4. Can we ask that Charters be Public? (And if there are any other non
Public charters, can they please be fixed...)

thanks


* In fact, it's totally unapparent that this it the case, I had to
ask, and first I had to ask for someone to make the Charter public (!)
