I think QA stands out as the broadest of the "horizontal" concerns that
apply to W3C products, so it would be appropriate for QAWG products to
mention the other horizontal concerns (as one-liners) even if the WGs that
specialize in those other concerns don't return the favor. Specifically,
the QA Handbook may represent the best assemblage of WG obligations in a
single place. If we want Spec Editors, Testing Coordinators, even Chairs
to rely on the Handbook for guidance, then it should incorporate the
other obligations by reference.
