This looks to me like a valuable consolidating activity.

I spotted one bit of could-be-clearer:

2. Deliverables and Schedule

The WG will initiate task forces for producing WG notes. These task forces 
will typically operate in the following way:

     * The time frame is short-term, e.g. 2-4 months
     * The editors/coordinators are selected from the WG participants
     * The editors may invite outside people with relevant skills to 
participate in task force.
     * A task force size should be 4-8 people
     * Task forces use the regular WG communication channels.
     * The result is proposed as a WG note to the full WG.

Reading rapidly, it's easy to think that the first bullet refers to the WG 
as a whole, rather than a task-force activity.

Suggest:  split the first paragraph into two.  Add to the first paragraph a 
comment about the expected duration of WG activity.
