Another way to help us get the broadest set of stakeholders possible is 
for the Speech work to be done in a new WG or an existing WG like with 
some speech experts (Voice Browser WG or MMI WG?) and then to create 
some type of joint task force with WebApps.

This would have the advantage that WebApps members would only have to 
make an IP commitment for the specs created by the task force (and none 
of the other WG's specs) and the other WG would not have to make an IP 
commitment for any of WebApps' other specs. (Note we are already doing 
this for the Web Intents spec and the Dev-API WG).

Is the VBWG or MMIWG interested in taking the lead on the speech spec?
