As others have indicated, a lot of the pieces you mention here are in scope for WebApps. But I agree with your instinct (as have others) that it makes sense for this group to have a clear understanding of the runtime it is defining since that has a direct impact on the design of the APIs. I've clarified the charter to not just add that but also push it forward. Note that in defining the runtime environment in which these APIs will live there is nothing that prevents that group from referencing existing specifications from other groups (e.g. WebApps for packaging, WebAppSec for CSP).
