They are not in the list of deliverables (which is a high-priority set of  
things that people are already working on). They are, as I understand it,  
well within the scope of the group. So it would take a draft, an editor,  
and presumably use cases and interest from implementors, before the group  
might add them to the deliverables.

Yes, I think that we agree on the way such work would happen, and that it  
is certainly possible in the scope of that group.
