UI team:
The team dealing with User Interfaces, Accessibility, XHTML, CSS and  

Framework team:
Responsible for feature evaluation and general guidance on  
architectural decisions. The Framework Team reviews and suggests  
features for inclusion in releases.

Although we all agree that UI is important, the framework team  
description only mentions feature evaluation and guidance on  
architectural decisions, and I don't associate framework with UI -  
especially when we have two teams. Should the description be changed  
in any way?

If we need UI people to approve PLIPs we have to change the process to  
involve the UI team in some way.

One solution is to always having a number of people chosen by the UI  
team on the framework team, another one is to have the UI team also  
review PLIPs and give recommendations to the release manager alongside  
the framework team.
