The process greatly depends on the organization. The usual issue when 
exchanging messages with external organizations is that they may not be 
working at the same confidentiality level. Typically, this group 
operates in public while HbbTV does not, which means that, depending on 
the contents of the messages being exchanged, we may need to create a 
member-only list for this group. Nothing too complex, that can be done 
if the need arises. The Web and TV IG has been exchanging with HbbTV in 
the past (e.g. about testing).

Apart from that, sending a message is basically a matter of sending an 
email to the point of contact in the liaisons table, cc-ing 
team-liaisons@w3.org to keep the relevant team at W3C informed.

HbbTV would definitely be a good target for the Presentation API, and 
inclusion should not be too complex as already pointed out. I have 
started to discuss that possibility with a couple of HbbTV Members but 
it is a good idea to send a formal message to the HbbTV Association that 
mentions our work on the Presentation API spec and asks whether there 
are additional requirements that would make it easy for them to include 
it in a future version of the HbbTV spec.

Francois.
