The calendar will soon turn to May and so if we're to do anything other
than drink Guinness while in Dublin for the next F2F, we will need some
draft recommendations.

I think each draft recommendation should be written up by the primary WG
members who will be developing the proposal. This division of labor
ensures each proposal is described by those most knowledgeable about it,
and that we've got a champion for each proposal who will help drive the
testing and implementation work that must be done.

To get some consistency among the proposal descriptions, I think we
should develop a template. The template would specify some required
sections for each proposal. For example, we could require a section that
enumerates the use-cases addressed by the proposal, or the security
information items relied upon, or the usability principles that are
leveraged, etc. We should develop this template over the course of the
next week.

I'd need to get finished text for each of the proposals by May 18th. By
finished text, I mean the exact text that should appear in the
recommendation document, but not necessarily in the W3C XML format. For
those unfamiliar with this XML language, I could go through and add the
syntax for the sections, paragraphs and lists. Look at our Note to see
the available structural elements. Shawn and I could then merge these
proposals into a document by the 23rd so that we all have a week to read
and think about the proposals before meeting in Dublin.
