Just reminding folks that this is an IG, not a WG. Two very different things.

Do you really think that this WG would continue even if the merge doesn’t go through? I would be surprised but stranger things have happened.

Many parts of the current (very early) Draft Charter are tied to the assumptions that
(a)     the combination of the two organizations will complete
(b)     the IDPF membership will allow the transition of EPUB3 to W3C

It seems to me that since neither of those is a fait accompli, we should not be building our charter around them.  Either that, or the charter should clearly spell out alternatives in the case that one or both fail to happen.
