That's probably a bad example to choose, since (AFAICT) that group has
got itself into gear and is likely imminently to produce some real
workable ideas/working code.

TWGs in general aren't a stunning success, but a lot of good solid
work seems to be done, and we may see others than the specials, maths
fonts and TDS groups also producing something soon.
