it does. we didn't follow-up on this topic after last F2F. I would  
encourage people to consider if they are interested to work on this and  
what they think is missing/needed today.

how does this differ from what we did last hear on "home networking" and  
ongoing work on service discovery and/or Web Intents in DAP?
(based on the assumption that our focus is more the technologies that can  
enable 2nd screen and not on the services around them that are really up  
to the market)

Since the IG is not writing specs, not full specs at least (but can write  
proposals), is ok to discuss topics in the IG first even if eventually  
they will be moved in groups that have a wider scope.
