Thank you for giving me the excuse to post this briefing:

Please suspend judgement, for now, and a focus on the collection of relevant
information or evidence.

Please try to sustain an information-gathering tone in discussions at this
time.  One of the missions of the written W3C Process is to try to ensure that
all interests get a hearing.  We have begun the process of trying to find all
interested stakeholders, but we haven't done due diligence yet to ensure that
they are on board.  This list is not a consensus body and is not 'chartered' to
reach conclusions.  It is best that we follow a guideline of not closing any
doors before the door is officially open.  By this I mean let's not draw
conclusions about what is and is not a requirement or a best choice until we
have succeeded in creating a duly chartered Working Group following the W3C
Process.
