Thanks!  It is a huge help to get the proposed draft letter, as I'm trying 
to reserve most of my cycles for spec work.

Questions.  You said earlier that the letter to the Chairs & dependencies 
need not reference a minutes with resolution to advance to Last Call.  So I 
can be send it now, e.g., Monday or Tuesday?  That is, we don't need to 
discuss / approve it during a WG teleconference, correct?  (Although I'm 
happy to have any feedback that any WG-ers might have.)

More embedded...

I like it as is, and have just one suggested change. See below.

okay, chairs@w3.org

Is there a master list of all WG email addresses for the latter, so that I 
can just extract the half-dozen addresses we need?  Or should I go to each 
of the WG pages to find the addresses?

I would suggest instead:  "The WebCGM WG Charter [4] lists these groups for 
coordination, and we specifically seek their feedback:

[4] http://www.w3.org/2006/03/webcgm-charter.html#coordination

[I like the idea to mention the charter and point to it.]
