"Strategy" funnel / work pipeline

Goal: Ensure the AC understands and can discuss the pipeline for future work with W3C management

Description: An overview of the funnel, and a look at how things do or don't move forward in a timely way from idea to actual Working Group. This should use real examples but not dive too deep, allowing plenty of time for the AC to raise and discuss questions on the items that interest them. It might be worth asking for written questions in advance, given that the funnel is available to everyone.
