Daniel - I think you hit the nail on the head there, but perhaps not in the way that you meant.

I believe that this group - for obvious reasons - is too focused about finding a replacement for EPUB and *not* focused on building the future of publications for the web.  And yes, I very strongly believe those are two completely different things.  As you have said so well in other threads - let's go ahead and fix EPUB and address the concerns of *that* industry...but do that completely separately from solving what is needed to enhance the web for publications (of all types).

I believe that it can be accomplished - even with our current charter - but it will require everyone to *want* to work in this fashion....

    I wish I had Baldur's eloquence (I'm serious) but I'm only a frog.
    I could not have written this better, and I am in full agreement
    with everything Baldur said. With all my tech background, I wonder
    where this WG is heading at and, worse, why... And the WG is voting
    on that.
    We're still in the "Deep concerns about the future of EPUB" that were,
    after all the denials, apparently spot-on.
