I am pretty much 100% in agreement with Jason. I certainly don't think it
is very useful to try and make something like this a recommendation - I
think it is too complex to justify the effort of getting complete
agreement and structuring for conformance testing etc.
That said, it is useful. I would suggest, where possible, contributing
directly to the work in the HTML WG. Having lots of seperate groups
working in parallel is not really optimal in many ways - it makes the
discussion more or less impossible to follow, which in turn effectively
reduces the transparency of the process.
