Me too. FWIW Opera is happy to have this work done. We think it would  
ideally be a joint deliverable (despite the fact that we don't like those  
in general) between WebApps (where there is a lot of expertise in design  
of web APIs, plus a lot of the relevant players) and the Voice group where  
there is a lot of specific expertise, unless we can get all the relevant  
people to join one or other of those groups.

There is the outstanding question of Apple's position...

Wait for me to propose a new draft charter. As it happens, I am waiting on  
Google people (Ian Fette is the named target because he brought the  
initial proposal) to explain their IME proposal better, but I intend to  
draft a charter in the next week with whatever we have agreed as a group  
to add, and start it along the approval process (it has to be agreed by  
the W3C membership as a whole).
