(Add validator, test materials to QA Glossary).

Btw, [1] is not yet linked from anywhere on our QA pages, as far as I could 
find with a quick look at "Resources" and other places.

I think that the W3C Process Document provides for modification of the 
charter when the WG's deliverables change.  See [2].  There is apparently a 
lot of latitude in what is "substantial" enough to warrant revisions.  I 
thought that the checkpoint was useful, but I don't feel strongly about 
it.  The new explanation ought to refer to the Process requirements.  The 
word "re-charter" is probably best avoided, as it is hard to decide what it 
means in terms of activities that [1] defines.  I.e., the Process Document 
does not define the concept.
