I would say that "Validation" is an ongoing topic of continuing change and
update. Instead of burdening the entire forum every time a change or
improvement to validation takes place, this group is the appropriate "parking
lot" for discussion/investigation. They can then produce the "one or more
documents offering options to the Forum for validation.." (taken from the
If you recall the history of this group started as the EV Working Group and
focused originally on EV vetting methods. But as we came across non-EV
situations, the Forum decided to expand the scope of the original group and
become a "catch all" for anything validation related. Hence it is difficult to
put a specific deliverable given this scope.

But as currently chartered, the Validation WG has no end date and no
deliverable whose delivery would terminate the group, right?
