I donít want to be in the position of the forced closure of a WG that we all agree should have been re-chartered and still operating. That would be Ö embarrassing.

Totally agree.  We should be able to process a new charter pretty simply and quickly if all that has happened is a change of milestone dates (and there is some accompanying material explaining whatís going on).
