Sorry I had not understood.  I think it is an idea that can be used  
if the caucus wishes.

I think that at least a small group to get together within the caucus  
to come up with the first draft.  one that we can put on this wiki,  
or other collaborative environment, we will have (I am looking about  
for a place to host one now - any ideas?) and then the entire caucus  
can work on it and discuss it and come to rough consensus on it.

Perhaps a way to start (and forgive me for already moving to the  
future before the end of the week - i do seem to part of the equation  
we are accepting) is that we find a volunteer or 2 for each item in  
Nnenna's outline, except perhaps etc which we can save for later.

what do you all think?  give each volunteer 1-2 weeks to come up with  
an basic draft - does not need to be polished, just something for  
people to throw ideas at - could even be more questions then answers  
if that is all there is at this point. these editors could then be  
the caretakers of that text as we moved forward if they wished,  
though the decision control would belong to the caucus.
