We are very interested in working further in this area and participating 
in a such TF.
In particular, in line with my presentation in Berlin, we would be in 
favor of considering declarative approaches to discovery, services, 
control, etc.
We can already contribute our open source implementation extending W3C 
widgets with discovery and service protocol capabilities to the 
evaluation work of such a TF.
Best regards
JC
