That's exactly what I wanted to provoke with my mail (-:
and I saw Joshue already reacting, Thanks!
 
I'm also available as editor if needed, but the editor group needs also an expert on this topic - Michael?

Hi Klaus,

I agree, however we need to get our own device independence wiki topic 
created and linked with INDIE UI, luckily Michael Cooper is on this 
group and is the w3c staff contact for INDIE UI. Pragmatically, we also 
need editors for the next topic whatever we vote on too.

Cheers

Si.

PS I check my email at 08:00 and 17:00 GMT. If you require a faster response please include the word 'fast' in the subject line.
