Prototype implementations are happening right now in Chrome and Mozilla so we really don't want to miss the boat: the folks working on this change focus quickly (it was last week they were working on Promises, and next week they could switch to something else).

On an initial scan the API proposal LGTM considering the needs of this group:

  https://github.com/slightlyoff/EventWorker/blob/master/event_worker.ts

I'll be evaluating it in more detail against the use cases the group has identified.

No problem. Actually, Kenneth will be at the Blink contributors conference next week. If Alex is there too I suggest the guys sync.

Having TAG around at TPAC would be very helpful indeed.
