Cruikshank,

WebCGM 2.0 was a Committee Specification from the WebCGM TC. OASIS
which was submitted to the W3C using the normal W3C Submission
process. The submission to W3C was acknowledged, and W3C created the 
WebCGM Working Group. The group started the recommendation track with of 
a first and Last Call WebCGM 2.0 Working Draft. It then produced a CR, 
PR and finally a Recommendation.

My understanding is that for our new work,WebCGM 2.1, there will be no 
submission to W3C. The work will be done jointly with OASIS and there 
will a W3C first Working Draft by 15 April 2008, followed with a Last 
Call WD by 01 July 2008 from an initial OASIS Committee Draft.

Also, Section 5 of the Mou [1] says:

"OASIS and W3C reserve the right to employ the process and agreement 
established with this MoU for future versions of WebCGM, by providing an 
annex with the reserved name and version, signed by the President of 
OASIS and W3C's chairman or Chief Operating Officer."

Therefore we should ask for such annex.
