Indeed the web would be but one of the many realms of the group.  I assume
(which isn't always good ;-) that the group would and will be discussing more
than the web, and aim to cover (as many aspects) of Ada as possible.

With this in mind I would like to suggest "SIGAda-World" as the name of this
group.  And of course, my interest to join this group would be definitaly
present :-).
