Re: [widgets] Seeking pre-LCWD comments for View Modes Media Feature; deadline March 17

While reviewing the new Web Apps WG charter, I noticed that the  
current (2008) charter does not list this deliverable. It also says:  
"The WebApps WG will not take on new Recommendation-Track Widgets  
deliverables without new charter review."

Could someone point me to the justification for publishing this spec  
in the current charter:
http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/charter/

Was there charter review for this item? If so, why was the charter not  
updated?

Regards,
Maciej
