OK, thank you! Mostly I won't respond in detail until other suggestions 
come and we can add up the proposals we have.

I really do want to emphasize some of the important principles and good 
practices that we've chosen to stand behind including possibly including 
things like Self-Describing Web, Use URIs (pertinent to Web Apps I think), 
Deep Linking, and Authoritative Metadata.

In short, I'm suggesting that we not focus mainly on what's taken time, but 
on what we've told the world that we still believe is or may be either 
important or controversial. That can include things handled years ago, like 
deep linking. I also think persistence of URIs may be interesting, in part 
because it shows the range of issues that the TAG has chosen to worry about.

I will say that I want to be a little careful about versioning since it was 
such a "third rail" for the TAG for so long. It's a great and important 
topic, but I'd want to get some consensus among those of us who have been 
on the TAG before deciding what to say about it. I think it's an area that 
each of us sees differently, and indeed, that may be the most important 
thing to say about it.

Anyway, let's see what everyone else thinks. Thank you!

Noah

I expect all incumbents to help with this; if any outgoing members care to contribute too that would be great. Please send me your lists within the next few days, then I will integrate them and prioritize.
