I think this proposal definitely makes sense and I support it. We would be 

happy to contribute the work from Sebastien on touch and pointer events 
mapping (see: 
). If the community group is extended to other related subjects as Rick 
proposed we could also be interested in discussing these subjects as well.

Subject:        CfC: Start a new Community Group for TouchEvent and 
PointerEvent  Mapping; deadline October 22

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
