Hey there Chris,

I agree we should keep sa but, would be nice to have a way to funnel 
work that has been done downstream up into the work on the W3C when 
appropriate.

Not entirely sure how this would work. Using the Git(hub) way, the W3C 
Web ED would be the main repo, others would fork and do some work, make 
some additions etc. and then send a pull request that we can then merge 
into the main repo if it fits and adds value.
