Actually, also in view of the fact that the very existence of the SC is sometimes questioned (see the other mail of Rick[1]) I think we should not simply reuse the SC. Let us avoid unnecessary controversies. I should have thought of that earlier.

So let me set up a separate (hopefully short lived, ie, 1-2 months…) mailing list. It would be open, ie, anybody can read the archives. The options that we have, from the top of my head:

- anybody can simply subscribe by sending a simple "subscribe" mail or does it have to be done by me explicitly? (I would propose 'no', it should be an explicit request to the mailing list, and I would take care of the mechanics)

- anybody can send a mail to the list, or only those who are already subscribed? (I would propose to leave it open to anyone who want to propose something, although that may open us up to spams in spite of the anti-spam measures that w3c have)

I will have a call soon, you guys can have fun finding a name for the list; the only restriction is that it should begin by "public-", in line with the naming conventions we have.

Our goal is to bring forward proposals that the larger BG could weigh in on. The looseness of the discussion right now makes it hard to move towards decisions.
