Yes, that's what the item "WG Outlook" is for. Whether we can make 
progress on this largely depends on who will attend the meeting. Some 
people are still on vacation. I hope Eric can make it. The most sensible 
way forward would be to get an extension, but without "official" W3C 
staff on the call we can only speculate about this. My understanding is 
that a prerequisite for an extension is that W3C sees enough activity in 
the WG, which is why I suggested additional items for the agenda.

The next three items on the agenda (3-5) are aimed at building 
compromises with those who felt outvoted in the previous meeting. The 
remaining items (6-12) are low hanging fruits that we can hopefully 
close to make some progress. I picked them based on the existing votes 
on the Proposals page.
