Dear Colleagues:

The Independent User Interface Working Group (IndieUI) requests approximately
30 minutes of time to meet with CSS and Web Apps (jointly or separately) at
TPAC to acquaint your working groups with a new technical approach in IndieUI

The IndieUI User Context specification is moving away from a reliance on a new
accessor method for key/value pairs, and toward an extensive reliance on Media
Queries (new media features, and matchMedia) as the more appropriate approach
for specifying the features we need. To address privacy and fingerprinting
concerns, we will also be proposing a new way for user agents to restrict
access to certain groups of media features based on user preference. For
example, if a site referenced a media feature related to video captions (via
matchMedia or @media), the user agent may prompt the user to allow access for
the domain. We expect that significant portions of our emerging User Context
specification will overlap with work coordinated by the CSS or Web Apps Working

Therefore, we are requesting time with your group at TPAC to acquaint you with
our approach and to develop an understanding of how best we can move forward.
If possible, we would prefer a morning meeting time in order to more
conveniently teleconference our specification editor from North America.

Thank you for your consideration.

Janina Sajka, IndieUI Chair
