Oh, sorry, I thought "domains" related to DNS rather than W3C domains :)

There has been discussion of an effort to build a cross-working groups
test harness that could host test suites and gather test results, in a
generalized and more robust approach to what the Mobile Test Harness [1]
offered.

Philippe Le Hégaret has been driving this to the best of my knowledge,
so I'm copying him here in case he is in the position to give an update
on this.

I'm not sure this involved the creation of a Working Group, but I might
be wrong.

HTH,

Dom
