Hi Marc,

I can attend the 2nd and 3rd phone meeting and possibly also the 
first one this Thursday.

As for contribution, I'm not sure my knowledge on languagues such as 
XML is deep enough to contribute seriously to the specification 
part. I merely use XML occasionally. So I see my role more in that 
of the prospective user and would like to contribute as such, 
sceptically monitoring the activities and examining the results. 
Hope that will be usefull, too!
