Isn't there a risk of causing confusion by re-using
the SHARE acronym? As far as I know the IBM version of
SHARE is still in existence, although with falling attendance.

I don't question the value of this work. What I do wonder is
whether this type of non-standards work really belongs in
the IETF. I don't intend this remark to block the charter,
but rather to trigger some general thinking - I still believe
that we need a user-oriented forum running parallel to the
IETF.
