Ian, Leigh, Dimitri, All,

On March 11, the agenda of the so-called Hypertext Coordination Group 
[HCG] will include XBL [XBL] to continue related discussions they had 
during their Feb 11 call [Feb-11-Mins]. I wasn't present at that call 
but based on those meeting minutes and what Leigh said last month 
[Leigh], I think the gist of the March 11 discussion will revolve around:

* What is the latest implementation status of the XBL2 CR [XBL2-CR] and 
Hixie's September 2010 version [XBL-ED] (previously referred to as 

* Which members of WebApps want to continue with the XML-based version 
of XBL2 as codified in the XBL2 CR? If you are groupin this , what firm 
commitments can you make to push the spec along the REC track? Would you 
object to the Forms WG taking over this spec?

* Which members of WebApps want to continue with the non-XML version as 
Hixie created last September? If you are in this group, what firm 
commitments can you make to push this version along the REC track 
(especially implementation)?

* Should the WG pursue Dimitri Glazkov's Component Model proposal 
[Component]? If yes, who is willing to commit to work on that spec?

Please send comments on the above as soon as possible (preferably before 
10:00am Boston time on March 11).
