I don't have strong feelings on this topic.  I was just reporting on
what I recalled the group had decided at the workshop.  There could be
a problem if the group becomes defocused and stop making progress on
the table database standard.  Also, ILU is just a remote data access
tool.  There isn't a database associated with the technology, so does
it make sense to discuss it in this group?  The WWW Consortium
is discussing the use of ILU as the next generation HTTP. Perhaps
this discussion should also include the web-sig@python.org, or
possibly it should be moved to that sig.
