There should be some sort of inventory of ‘what is available from the W3C?” that includes Recs, CG FSs, Useful Notes, and so on

Yes, I think that consensus to mention is assumed for Rec status documents but needs to be asked for for other documents.

The Nuts Community Group would like to have “Macadamia or Academia: Considerations for Allergy Considerations sections” on the publications page. If no objection is heard in 30 days…

that’s being done now.  does anything forbid it?

I personally think it enhances the value proposition to have incubation in CGs possible, even encouraged.
