Re document status: Status of this Document

Link from <<task force>>:

 I was hoping we could at least give a pointer to the background given to the task force, but there wasn't a clear statement of charter. Looking for a brief description or pointer to the charter of the task force, I think we could point to at least one of these where someone looking at the report could dig down to find what originally was hoped for from the task force, even if it didn't accomplish those goals. ACTION-437 (http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/group/track/actions/437) doesn't really have the history (although perhaps this message will help.) 
I see http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2010May/0027.html references Raman's note https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/tag/2010Apr/0038.html (member-private)
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2010Jun/0106.html references https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/tag/2008Aug/0067.html

I’m not sure it's needed to say this, or that there was any expectation that it was rec trac, was there?

"In MONTH of YEAR, the W3C Technical Architecture Group called for the creation of a task force to bring together divergent forces in the Web community. This document is the report of that task force."

I'm confused as to whether the task force intends to continue, or whether it is closed. 

http://www.w3.org/2010/html-xml/snapshot/report.html


says:

"Please report errors in this document to the HTML/XML Task Force mailing list public-html-xml@w3.org (public archives are available)."
And
"Readers are particularly encouraged to report additional use cases that they feel are not represented or specific examples where the solutions outlined are not appropriate."

Should it still say that if the task force is closed? Or point to the TAG?

Since we don't have any next steps discussion:

"This report is being released at this time as the report from the Task Force; the TAG will be considering next steps and solicits input from the community."


Larry
