The Community Groups [1] page says they are for "anyone to socialize their
ideas for the Web at the W3C for possible future standardization".

The HTML Speech Incubator Group has done a considerable amount of work and
the final report [2] is quite detailed with requirements, use cases and API
proposals. Since we are interested in transitioning to the standards track
now, working with the relevant WGs seems more appropriate than forming a
new Community Group.
