I'm a member of the XBL Task Force, which takes 20% of my time, which 
satisfies my required commitment according to the SVG charter. Thus I am 
not required to also take part in the many other aspects of the SVG 
working group's quite intensive schedule.

The XBL task force members were actively involved in the XBL integration 
with SVG 1.2. (You will notice that my last call comments on the XBL 
integration chapter focussed on SVG issues, not on XBL issues.)

Note: Strange as it may seem, W3C members do at least attempt to follow 
the W3C Process rules. While it may not be immediately apparent to you how 
we do so, it is also not in any way a requirement that W3C members' 
employees explain to you how they do so.
