Given that the charter cannot be redefined later, and it seems silly to constitute a new TC for interop with a standard that's likely 90% the same at worst, I don't see why versions need to be specified.

Thinking about it further, it also doesn't seem reasonable to require that something be a standard before the TC can consider it. To be of most value to vendors and to promote best interop, it seems obvious to me to work on standards which are not yet finalized. Surely the best point at which to raise interop concerns with a standard is before it's finalized/ratified?

Workload should be a separate matter - it's one of available resources/prioritization, and that would be better done by the TC than the charter in my opinion.
