Hello Ben,

Thanks a lot for this feedback.

I especially agree with the following part:

If it can make sense for web publications to act like progressive web apps
> (installed side by side, responsible for their own offline experience,
> etc.) then adopting the WAM clearly makes sense. If a core tenet of WP is
> that publications only contain data and not code, then this just doesn’t
> work, there doesn’t seem to be much overlap between web publication
> requirements and WAM, and adopting things like link ref=manifest may cause
> more trouble than it helps if user agents can be things like extensions.

I'll wait for Tzviya to break this down on Github before providing more
extensive feedback but some of your points are IMO already directly
connected to existing issues.

3.4.1 Default Reading Order

I fully agree with this and created an issue specifically about it:

3.4.2  Resource list
>    - If taking the web publication offline…Any resource in the default

I will comment directly on issue 59.
