This has been a common comment. I've changed the charter to indicate that the group is not required to produce browser-safe APIs, but I've dropped any wording that prevents it from doing so. Indeed, you never know, if an API happens to work in both cases then there is no reason that it should be artificially transferred to another group.

There's a large batch of changes that I'm in the process of making, and right after that I plan on sending the draft to W3C management so that they can then put it in front of the AC. Thanks a lot for all your comments!
