Hey Ruben

Unsure of the status, but having worked with you on the solid team, I'd +1
you to be an excellent choice.

If I'm correct there's 3 volunteers so far, Dalton, Phil and Ruben.
(Dmitri withdrew himself)

Regarding the work load, there is nothing official in a community group,
and entirely up to the individual.  Chairs can also stand down if they feel
the commitment is not a good fit.

I've been in groups with 3 chairs before, for example, the social web xg,
and it worked pretty well.  We dont normally volunteer on behalf of others.

So, what I suggest is the following :

To fill our immediate need with the w3c, the 3 volunteers promote
themselves to chair status.

Then, should, there be further discussion on this topic, we could come up
with a more formal system, at a later date.
