These changes, including the clarifications that resulted from DavidB's 
comments [1], seem like good steps to me.

I could also live with the change Peter proposes in [2] (`who` actually 
nominates a candidate seems <<< important than the quality of the 
candidates i.e. I support less restrictions in the nomination step).

(I still think the benefits of using the WG structure for the scope of 
`Web architecture` outweigh the overhead of creating a one-off group 
with special process handling in the PD. But, I'll save that for another 
day ;-).)

-Thanks, AB
