If I understand the approach (compliance JIG + compliance WG)  I agree.
Opening the discussion of compliance to the public (JIG) should result in
better representation for the issues that matter to the widest demographic.
Not to mention the increased possibility of finding more volunteers for the
work.  Having a WG that is smaller in number and accountable to the JSF
should insure progress by avoiding the "everyone is responsible so no one is
responsible" syndrome.  Also, this would permit the WG to protect sensitive
information proprietary to the JSF like product test results and information
proprietary to the developer such as "early release" product info.

Peter, I'll take a crack at the JEP if your swamped.
