I talked with Jeff H. yesterday about this, and he pretty much convinced me 
that there's no explicit prohibition against having a co-chair arrangement 
in the rules.  So if people are amenable, we could adopt a standing rule 
that goes something like this:

"The SSTC shall allow for election of up to two TC chairs who share 
chairing responsibilities as they see fit.  In this case, one of the two 
co-chairs shall take primary responsibility for communicating with OASIS

We could do this, but it feels a little like overkill...  I don't want to 
belabor the point, but I've been in various groups with co-chairs, and we 
didn't go this far.
