I donít believe the second topic (in scope or not) should be debated
at this time. It was not one of the concerns listed by the Chairs
and Team Contacts in the CFC.

Personally, I think that the argument ďitís in scopeĒ is not very strong
rationale. We want to hear how this specification will address use
cases and improve the Web.

Personally I have no objection to extending the call for consensus; thatís
for the Chairs to decide. However, I suggest we proceed under the
assumption that we COULD publish (that is, itís in scope of our charter,
which I believe is defensible) and focus instead on whether we SHOULD
