At TPAC, the WebApps working group agreed to work on the Stream API
but at this point we only have an Editor's Draft [1]. In general, I
don't think documents are usually listed in the PubStatus page until
they have reached FPWD status. There is no set schedule in the WebApps
working group and specs tend to proceed at a speed based on the
amount of feedback. 

It would be great to get feedback on how we can align the Stream
and MediaStream objects, perhaps so they might have a common base.

Thanks,

Feras

Good question. Perhaps Feras can enlighten us.

Feras, I know this was only recently accepted into the WebApps WG; do you know the expected schedule or timeline for getting this document done?

It would also be nice to see it listed in the charter's deliverables [1] and PubStatus page [2].
