Hi Harry,

Well, my initial opinion is that focusing on a common crypto API is
exactly the wrong thing to worry about here. As we discussed in the
workshop (and as your report states), other places like the HTML and
Webapps WGs (as well as TC39 for Javascript itself) seem like much
more suitable places.

Unless you were thinking of working on a requirements document, maybe?

It seems to me that the group should rather *only* concern itself with
identity and session management; otherwise we run into scope conflicts
with other groups.
