Thanks, this is great!

Each of our "Objectives" has a W3M person who is tracking them.  The 
W3Mer who is tracking "TAG" is Timbl.  So it is not me who is looking 
for two specific projects - but he.  All I did was suggest the idea of 
having two specific projects.

Accordingly, if Timbl agrees with you, I would agree as well.

I guess that both of these relate strongly to the Interaction Domain.  
In that case, we could have Timbl and Philippe track these together.

Yes, thanks.
