Actually - yes - because my hunch is that your summation will set the 
groundwork for the first concrete Avalon charter.  Within that context I 
think Avalon's role in this context is more about enabling publication 
though technology than itself as a publishing house.  At the same time 
think we have a role in demonstrating publication through our repository 
in avalon-components - a proof of viable and sustainable component and 
service content management.
