I believe we should drop all the Phase 2 deliverables except the following list:

Accounts API
Bluetooth API
Calendar API
Contacts API
Media Storage API
Network Interface API
Resource Lock API
Secure Elements API
Serial API
System Settings API

The biggest risk I see for this working group is that we try to work
on too many deliverables at once.  If we do that, we'll have
insufficient expertise to review the work, and we'll end up producing
a bunch of low-quality specifications that won't be widely
implemented.  We've seen this failure mode in previous working groups,
and we should learn from those experiences and avoid it here.

deliverables at some point.  I'd much prefer to agree on a shorter
list now before I commit to investing resources in this working group.
