Based on popular demand (and threats that without a spec implementations 
would proceed regardless) I have started collecting use cases and 
requirements for a specification for background worker scripts ("threads") 
in JavaScript:

   http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-workers/current-work/#requirements

Any feedback would be greately appreciated, especially from authors 
involved in large Web applications who would make significant use of such 
a feature, and from implementors of browsers that may support this.
