At one of those meetings (February 13th [1]) Tim stated that he felt that 
the problem was that in part there was no coordinated plan. I agreed to 
draw up a plan which I've (roughly) drafted at [2], but a plan won't 
succeed, "without a forum and heart-beat. Fortunately, this is the TAG's 
RDFinXHTML-35 assigned to Dan Connolly." (Otherwise, I'm just blowing smoke 
circles for myself <smile/>.) In your text above you seem content to let 
the issue lay until enough consensus builds around a proposal. This seems 
counter to the belief that there will be no progress without advocacy with 
commitment and milestones.

I continue to be willing to help on this topic (getting feedback on the 
rough requirements and deliverables, and obtaining and following up with 
commitments) in the context of the TAG issue if you think it worthwhile. 
Otherwise, should I consider my action discharged?
