Hi Leonard,

The IDPF membership overwhelming approved the merger and the IDPF and W3C
are proceeding with completing the "merger."

I think, at this stage, it's appropriate to proceed as if the terms if the
merger will impact our activities -- including chartering the the DPUB WG
(which is part of merger terms).

If the merger doesn't happen, I'd still view any input the DPUB IG has now
to this very early draft charter as quite relevant to the direction we'd
pursue independently.
