The charter does state WG members will not have to rejoin WebApps. I didn't notice anything in the charter itself that would preclude an AC review comment on other parts of the charter.

My understanding of that process (which may be wrong) is that you don't have to write a whole new charter, just identify the new deliverable, have the AC review addition of that deliverable, and then patch in place if the AC approves. As opposed to a normal recharter which requires writing a whole draft charter, subjecting it to many stages of review including AC review of the whole thing, and then having everyone rejoin. So my expectation is that it could be done a lot faster than a recharter and that "drafting a new charter" doesn't have to be one of the steps. But I may be misunderstanding how it is supposed to work.

Maciej
