IPR briefing for new charters…

This is ACTION-33 to deal with ISSUE-121

In the Activities section there is the following requirement:

[A new Activity] proposal MUST include or reference
Intellectual property information. What are the intellectual property (including patents and copyright) considerations affecting the success of the Activity? In particular, is there any reason to believe that it will be difficult to meet the Royalty-Free licensing goals of section 2 of the W3C Patent Policy [PUB33]?

If there are important considerations, such as reason to believe it will be difficult to meet the RF licensing goals, or that there are members known to be avoiding the group for IPR reasons, this is important information for the AC to do a review.

I propose that we make the requirement to include this information in any charter proposal, by moving the bullet point to the list of requirements for a charter proposal in 6.2.6 - http://www.w3.org/2014/Process-20140801/#WGCharter
