I think I'm speaking for the TAG when I say we claim no such authority, 
and that our message was pretty clear on this.

We were asked to think about XML Profiles/Subsetting and it was our 
conclusion that there are good arguments for work in this area; we 
outlined some thoughts on the technical issues, and that's all.  It is 
up to the Core WG, the Co-ordination group, the W3C Team, and perhaps 
other interested parties to decide whether they agree, and if so, who 
should do the work and whether charter revisions are required, and  so 
on.  -Tim
