Hello Phil,

I think a key issue will be the balance of activities that are "semantic"
perhaps most at home within the existing Geosemantics DWG and those which
cover the broader topics coverage / BP related which would be the focus of
the new JWOC ? We don't want to duplicate efforts neither do we want to
hijack existing OGC activities.

I agree with the monthly telecom tempo...
