Without the research and guidelines provided by the UX team, user-facing projects (such as Docs) will be poorer. I believe that it's in Foundations best interests to ensure that UX work is ongoing, and adequately supported, in the same way as Marketing and other user outreach services.

I think the team will have a quorum to continue the persona and research work but we will need to find if there are people in the community with actual UX design experience that are willing to also participate.  Does the TC envision this as a UC or TC governed WG?  I'll submit the patches according to your response.

We don't really have a process to vet for workgroups on the TC side
(they just form organically). It feels like a group that could straddle
both sides. If you think it would help the group to be formally
recognized as a UC workgroup, please go ahead and create it.
