Hi All,

During the October 15 call [1], we discussed the Touch Events and Pointer Events mapping document including its scope, important issues and questions
to document, etc. We also discussed options for how to create and maintain the document.

A key conclusion of the discussion is we currently do not have interoperable implementations of Pointer Events nor do we have at least two browsers
that fully support both events. Additionally, we believe it will be several months before we have sufficient implementation and deployment data to
create a useful mapping document. At the same time, the group's charter expires in the middle of November (three years after the group started).

Doug and I discussed the various options regarding how to structure the mapping work and we propose a new Community Group (CG) be created for this
work. A CG has a number of advantages including light-weight process to start and run, an open environment for the work and the potential to publish
the mapping as a CG Final Report/Spec. At the end of the CG's work, the CG could propose their work be `furthered` by a Working Group (an existing WG
or a new WG).

We would like everyone's feedback on this proposal so please consider this e-mail as a Call for Consensus (CfC) to start a new Community Group for the
mapping document.

If you have any comments or concerns about this CfC, please send them to public-webevents@w3.org by October 22 at the latest. Positive response is
preferred and encouraged and silence will be considered as agreement with the proposal.

-Thanks, Art and Doug
