We've got lots to do working at a level above APIs. Working on stuff that will make the Web a better place for cross channel, multi channel, usable doesn't really have much to do with APIs at the outset.

We have plenty to do pointing out that the APIs we'd like to see are non-existent, incomplete, inconsistent or imprecise.

There is quite a bit of activity in the W3C and elsewhere assessing availability and conformance of features in different implementations. That's certainly relevant to this group, but specifically maintaining a list of "who-does-what" is something that seems to be happening quite nicely, and that we don't need to spent time doing.
