Thanks Chris,

As W3C seeks to work by consensus, and indeed the requested Threat Model
deliverable matches one PING agreed to adopt at its TPAC meetings, I've
proposed a pull request to the charter draft[1] to add that reference in
the charter.

If others who reviewed the charter agree with this change, then we'd
take the whole thing to the Director. In the meantime, I've requested an
extension to the current charter as a buffer.

It's great to see all the energy around privacy at TPAC, and I look
forward to working together to improve the web's privacy for users.
