My question is the second one (process). The reason I ask wrt XHTML is
because this is one of the areas in which my group has already done work
and we want to know what the rules are for contributing.
Looks like Nokia are in the same position (?)

 Not sure what's been happening behind the scenes. I know that there are a
few groups out there with work in this area and we are all maybe
looking for some kind of seal of approval from W3C to ensure that we are
on the right track. I think one difficulty is finding target
devices/implementations to develop with.
