I think he's otherwise occupied right now.

Then I won't vote, but I'm not sure a "celebrity consensus" would be
very useful or interesting.

In any case it's not going to be a "binding vote" on the W3C XML Working
Group, nor are you likely to get the people you've chosen to make a W3C
Working Group, even if W3C worked that way.

The person you'd actually have to persuade is watching the thread. Some
of the business questions might include...

* Which companies or organizations would pay to join W3C to do the work?

* Who would implement new the spec?

* Who would use it?

* What business problems would be solved?

* What would be the impact on the existing deployed XML base?

* What would be the relationship to the existing W3C XML Core Working

I'm not saying that those questions are necessarily hard or
unanswerable, but rather that answers would probably be needed.
