Proposal: New Section 10.5 Member Submission of a proposed Working Group Charter

Member Submissions have long been used to suggest new work in W3C.
Workshops, requests to the Team, and Team initiated proposals are more
common paths. In all these instances, the Director then decides
whether to begin an AC Review to approve a Working Group Charter. Those
are the preferred paths for starting a new Working Group. This section provides
another path for initiating an AC Review of a proposed Charter directly
by the Advisory Committee that ensures the Membership can always initiate
AC Review of a Charter it wants to consider.

A Member Submission may include a proposed Working Group Charter, where
the request is for the Team to submit the proposed Charter to Advisory
Committee Review for starting the Working Group.  Incubator specs for
every proposed specification deliverable must be part of the Member
Submission, along with the Charter.   If the Team acknowledges a
Submission, but rejects the proposal to Submit the Charter to AC Review,
then the TAG,  AB or 5% of the AC may cause the start of an Advisory
Committee Appeal vote as in Section 7.2.  That appeals vote would then
decide whether to instruct the Team to prepare the Charter and put it to
AC Review. The Director, for budgetary reasons, could choose to offer
only minimal team support in the Charter for the proposed group.
