I am a little bit surprised by the timetable. The group is meant to start in February '16 and the FPWD-s published in September-October '16? That when, in theory, the group starts with an existing documents based on ODRL? This goes straight against the trend in current groups (that I agree with) of "publish early, publish often".

My feeling is that the group would start by publishing the ODRL documents, with minimal re-write, right at the beginning, to put some stakes in the ground. Ie, a FPWD should be possible, for most of the documents, sometimes in Spring 2016. That would also send the message to the community making it clear that "the future is in the WG, the CG is history!".

I also believe that, after a while, synchronizing all documents is important. Ie, I would not want to publish CR/PR/REC first for the model and, one months later, for the rest. It does not look good imho.

That being said, there are discussions (started by Doug, if I remember well) whether it is wise to put such tables into a charter or not, knowing fairly well that those time tables are rarely followed in practice… Best check this with the higher authorities!
