Hey Markus,

This is a continuation of a discussion (with an agenda request) that is
going on here:

I'd also like to request that we spend a little bit of time "hardening"
the DID WG to W3C member shenanigans that typically happen at the
beginning of a Working Group... namely, some big company jumping into
the group with a counter-proposal to the DID spec and attempting to have
the W3C CCG DID spec thrown out as a starting point.

We need to make sure the community understands the attack vector and
knows how we can respond to it.
