Yes, our plan has always been to merge our work into an official
standards-track deliverable. Prior to forming this CG we explored several
options, including adding it to the charter of WebApps, but that was
hindered by a lack of specific spec/scope.

Now that we are getting close to completing the first draft of the spec, we
should revisit putting the spec on the standards-track in WebApps and/or
other W3C groups. Let me know your suggestions of potential other W3C
groups.
