I also think a more open ended charter is preferable; a clear description of the general category of work perhaps illustrated by - but not limited to - a couple of examples.

It's more important to constrain the nature of the solutions (e.g. the use of standard extension registries, maintenance of semantics for the performatives defined in the core etc) than to provide a detailed scope up front.

The work actually conducted will rightly be in those areas for which sufficient interest can be mustered to get proposals made and shepherded through discussion towards a vote.

Just as a suggestion on approach, I've attached a modified version of the draft in which sections c and d are edited to make clear the more open scope. Section b is already very good I think. (Apologies if my editor has messed up the formatting in anyway!)
