That's a pretty good wrapup, henry.

Some time was also spent discussing the possible overlap between browserid.

IIRC alternate authentication methods such as oauth / openid / gpg we
touched on.

I guess the new CG will be more informal, tho there will be effort put
into finishing the spec and creating a high quality charter for
potential next steps.  Tim pointed out that there are occasions on
which the purpose of an XG is to get the charter for a WG up to a very
good standard.
