I agree on the federation idea, which Berin adopted for the XML TLP, but
please note that the XML Federation has no impact on TLP issues for the
Board.  The federation idea is about fostering tighter collaboration across
multiple communities that are in seperate TLPs.  That has no effect on the
corporate structure, nor on the requirement for each TLP to separately
report to the Board.  TLP reporting is a corporate structure issue, whereas
federation is about sharing resources (e.g., web-site and mail domain) and
community building.
