FFS, Charles. We are going to do that! The point is to figure out what might be good things to work on. Then we can do the IPR review once we have the charter written and it gets reviewed by the AC.

Stop trying to downplay or ridicule my request for input to improve the platform. You know perfectly well what I was asking for and so does everyone else on the list.

Yay! Let's further hold back the Web because of Charles IPR FUD. 

Seriously, you poo-poo'ing everything every time we try to do something progressive at the W3C is getting really tiresome. If you want to provide ideas on interesting things to work on, then do so. Otherwise, please stay out of the way and you can have your say about IPR when this goes for review. Shutting down discussions with FUD and bringing a whole bunch of ridicule and negativity to the WG is not helpful.
