I share some of Robin's concerns. And additionally, the concern that
I'm nor sure how to report the difference. On the one hand, I'm
perfectly happy to wait until we've worked out what the algorithm is
and see how we feel then. On the other hand, if what we're saying is
that an API that performs XML-ER parsing must have a mechanism for
reporting whether it did recover, I think that's ok. But that's kind
of a cheat since we haven't yet undertaking to describe any APIs

How about if we soften it a bit:

  Applications that perform error recovery should provide a mechanism
  for identifying when recovery was performed on a document.

But leaving it out of the charter and making it issue 1 works for me too.
