Hi Andy,

I'm fascinated to see how cut-down the charter now is, especially based
on the public discussion and apparent consensus that had been forming on
this list.

Personally I find it hard to see how a solely Point of Interest standard
based on the thinnest definition will be anything but very out dated and
redundant by Dec 2011 (scheduled date for REC).

Also, since so many people will be in Seoul for ISMAR10, ISWC, Mobile AR
Summit and the AR Standards Workshop then surely that would be a great
time to kick off this discussion in more detail.
