Hi Jeremy,

The issue is a bit different. We do not impose things here. We do NOT 
say "All W3C WGs MUST recharter and define its QA commitment...."

You can read it like that.

If a WG decides to apply the QA Framework, it will have to comply to 
certain things like modifying the charter. It means that it will be a 
choice of the WG itself or not.

We believe in the self-assesment to QA, and we hope that the CR phase, 
which will start very soon for QA Ops Guidelines, will be a way to 
achieve that. If WGs want and are able to apply by themselves the QA 
Ops Guidelines, we will have a success. If it's too partial or not 
implemented at all, or with strong difficulties, it means we have a bad 
document, and we will have to work again.

What we are asking now: "Just try and tell us."

You are welcome to push your comments again.
