Anything not stated explicitly in the charter is out-of-scope, UNLESS it
is needed to support something in the charter indirectly. This isn't a
matter of "permitted unless prohibited" - the point of the charter is to
constrain the scope. It's also not a matter of "once you open the spec,
anything is on the table"; that's not how charters work.
I - and Eric - are saying that if you want to add requirements, FIRST
you need to get the WG consensus on changing the charter. THEN we need
to get the AD's on board. THEN we do the work to address the requirements.
