I have read the first chapter to get an idea of HyperMedia.  I have many questions ...  but before that ...

I suggest a start is to have a discussion with the goal of documenting a "Why" statement.

First, however, I assume that the charter of this group is to generate a concrete proposal or specification ?
If that is not the case lets start there.  What is our charter?

Then ... "Why".

Why do we want to do this.
What problem are we trying to solve that is not solved better by existing usage or standards
What is the hoped for impact or value add to society.
Why is this important enough to standardize ?
