Nigel made his original post about the lack of let's say "guidelines" 
nearly six weeks ago. It would be good if we could get to a point where 
proposals (like this one) that don't get blocked by "OMG, will doing X 
risk loosing full member Y?" just get implemented (and iterated if/when 
necessary). As such, I recommend you put this service online toady and 
let's see what happens. I note too that since Nigel's request, 7 LCWDs 
have been published and thus not announced. I can't tell from a first 
level scan of TR/tr-date-drafts/ if any FPWDs or PD2014 pre-CRs have 
been published since  his posting.

[BTW, it's a bug that tr-date-drafts does not explicitly identify FPWDs 
and pre-CRs. And speaking of "pre-CR" that seems like a horrible name 
(and I acknowledge I could be the originator)].

Anyhow, as to this service, I would separate the WGs and IGs into 
separate lists (it's a bit funky to see all of the WGs in alpha order 
and the IGs appended at the end, although addressing this is certainly 
not a showstopper.)

I also recommend all XG Final Report publications get announced on this 
list. (I think this is especially important if the Consortium does 
indeed move to a work flow where the creation of a new WG is blocked 
until all of its REC track deliverables have some type of "spec" available.)

I recommend you move the FAQ to a wiki document the `community` can 
evolve over time.
