Please point out the contradiction.  I assert that the scope statement 
lists only activities. Surely activities aimed at the production of 
deliverables, but activities nevertheless.

You say the scope is open-ended and allows the TC to do anything.  And 
Peter things that scope is too narrow and would prevent the TC from doing 
useless and necessary things.  It sounds like I've found the proper middle

I will ignore all schedule estimates, including my own, until we know who 
will actually be a member of the TC.  Once I have that list, the charter 
members will have a teleconference to go over the charter and make any 
necessary changes to the charter.  It will be natural to change the dates 
for the deliverables based on the actually number and interests of the 
charter members.

requires 2, not 3 OASIS organizational members.  I think we will have 5 or 
6 different OASIS member organizations signing up, along with individual

Do you care to offer any concrete suggestions for changes?  The door is 
closing.  General statements of "not acceptable" will have zero influence 
on the charter.  I can promise you that much.  But there still is 
opportunity to make concrete suggestions.
