Tobie, I agree that resources are the essential element, but unfocused resources don't help us meet any specific goal. Perhaps people misinterpret the use of the term "shepherding". The intent is not to diminish the effectiveness of the work being carried out at a spec and framework level, and we would have to watch carefully to ensure that didn't happen.

But if W3C members are now somehow allergic to the discussion and strategic work toward a larger vision for TTWF, I guess that discussion will have to occur elsewhere - unfortunate but perhaps a practical necessity.

The testing effort doesn't need more management, it needs more resources (funds and/or engineering time). Until such resources are provided, shepherding will be a deterrent to the community that built around it, not a help.
