I found that the Web Characterization activity also uses  "WC" acronyms. I 
had thought they were using WC but it turns out they use WCG as well as 
WCA.  I had proposed WCG for the Web Content Guidelines working group in 
the draft of the charter.  This obviously won't work.

Therefore here are some new proposals:
1. WCAG WG - it puts the "accessibility" back into the name, but people 
could potentially confuse the working group with the document.
2. WCGL WG - Web content guidelines working group.  i have no issues with 
this one.

Previously Discarded:
1. GL - people could infer that the WAI only produces one set of guidelines.
2. markup - too general and confusing with markup activities.

so far, (2 responses) WCAG WG is the running favorite with the WAI team.
