I agree. Note that the good thing is that every member of this group
has access to the esw wiki. So we can maintain wiki like things there. So if
a FAQ comes up here or in conversations people have with others trying to
explain the protocol, or if people see spelling mistakes, or badly written
text please don't hesitate  to update the wiki: You can.

We probably need to rename some things such as foaf+ssl => webid. But we 
can do that in one go when work out the best naming convention.

What we should do is use the content there to put together small well
written proposals here for issues the group think this is important 
enough to add to the final report. 

The wiki here can also be used to flesh out proposals for the spec or for 
accompanying documentation. If people have a few different proposals we 
can speak of them by pointing to a page that describes the proposal and 
it's pros and cons. This was one way we proceeded in the Atom working group. 
So we should designate a space for people to put up such reports with a 
template for doing that perhaps.
