good question for sure :)

It is certainly possible to have a BOF there but that means a short
meeting for a small subset of SWS people. Maybe not sufficient.

You may want to contact some W3C SW folks there in any case, to get
the "non-WS" impression.

I think we could organize a second workshop after the XG terminates its
work, there could be a presentation of results and then a debate.
I also hope to see more discussion in this mailing list in the next
few weeks/months.
