Agreed 100%.  Given the size of the list we started with, the group felt
it was important to scope our charter closely to what we have the
resources to achieve.  We (like many standards groups) have an unfortunate
habit of missing our schedules already, and I would say this got a "no"
for reasons mostly of triage.

That said, I think if there are individuals who will publicly commit to
showing up and doing the work as editors, testers and liaisons with other
groups, I don't think there is a fundamental objection to tackling some of
the web-specific interactions we discussed earlier on list.
