Discussing such a proposed covenant is NOT in the scope of the current HTML Media Extensions WG charter [1].   If the W3C Director has wanted the HME WG to take on this task when the WG was re-chartered on March 31 I am sure he would have added this dependency to our charter.

Therefore I am NOT going to entertain your request for amending the current HME WG timeline [2].

I propose that this timeline be amended to include a discussion of a covenant, whose text we will determine as a group, to protect security researchers and implementers from legal aggression under DMCA 1201 and related international statutes.

In order to make as much progress as possible on these open V1 issues, the Editors are meeting F2F at the end of this week.  In addition, in order to help the Editors deliver by the June 9 date and to give the HTML Media Extensions (HME) WG the maximum time to deal with more controversial issues, I am proposing that we keep some items in the July Candidate Recommendations but that we mark these items as being "at risk".  Marking an item "at risk" means that the HME WG can decide to remove the item from our Proposed Recommendation without having to re-publish another Candidate Recommendation.

This will permit discussion with the W3C TAG to continue on [4] before and during the Candidate Recommendation timeframe so that we can make the most informed decision on this feature.
