Agree.

Yeah, I have had to choose between competing things in my life once or  
twice ;)

Indeed.

As a co-chair of webapps which is *one* of the groups that makes APIs I  
think it makes good sense to notify public-script-coord when we start a  
work item, and request review at points like FPWD and last call. Unless  
someone suggests it is a bad idea, I'll add that to things about how we  
work. I can also suggest it to other W3C chairs - it seems like a very  
lightweight requirement that would be a useful practice.
