It seems to me, that by virtue of using public-webapps, it does give 
WebApps WG a role e.g. to at least comment on the CG's editing spec. 
[Whether such a role is "official" or not is probably just "splitting

Would you also please explain what you mean by your hoping it will *not* 
be necessary for the editing spec to move to the W3C's Recommendation 
track (f.ex. why do you feel this way)?

Is there consensus within the CG to not move the spec to the REC track?
