I was making the point that this should happen as soon as possible so there isn't too much data to move around. Henry voiced an opinion about putting it off until the next call (which was today). We were supposed to take a decision today, but we ran out of time during the call. I'm still in favor of making this move asap.

re 2: could we not ask W3C if they'll host the group w/ issue tracker 
etc? seems like a logical home, or does an official XG/WG w/ charter 
from W3C need to be in place for this to happen?
