I don't know what you had in mind when you wrote that. Outreach is
important, but the task of the WG is to write documents and the
documents produced should do that for us.

Indeed, and that should be done through the Web Services Coordination

It is true that we should acknowledge and consider other efforts. Our
charter identifies 4 existing external groups[2] having a relationship
with our architecture work. Our Group should not act as a general
liaison role with the rest of the Web services world per se though.
The WSCG should look into this.
