There are a lot of community groups that sprang up at the W3C, most of those I have joined are completely silent and have close to no activity. If people wish to discuss identity in general along with the thousands of other groups thats fine for them to do it there I suppose. But looking carefully at what they are writing they seem to want to discuss identity, privacy etc at quite a generally abstract level. 

Here we are concentrating on a protocol that we know works, and that is currently using TLS. As we discussed at the last conf call, it is a bit silent here until the WWW2012 Lyon, because a lot of us are implementing the protocol that we spent last year writing up in the spec. One should perhaps make them aware of our spec, as a starting point if the group gets off the ground.
