I agree. At the W3C Offline workshop last Saturday there was also a sense from
some of the participants that some kind of get together, perhaps in BarCamp style,
would be helpful to, at the very least, allow people to share their concerns and
get requirements on the table. While we're not chartered to make decisions
synchronously, synchronous communication can help to remove misunderstandings.
Perhaps in 6 months (twice a year) would be reasonable.

I think getting to know each other better is also helpful in improving how we
all work together.


Cheers,
