I clarified the intro in the Use Cases and Requirements section as follows [1]:

[[

Below is a list of use cases derived from the initial input to the System Applications Working Group Charter that were not addressed by the Runtime and Security Model for Web Applications [SYSAPPS-RUNTIME]  a proposal the group decided to obsolete due to lack of implementers' interest. Currently, the domain initially covered by [SYSAPPS-RUNTIME] is split across multiple specifications and the use cases compatible with the Web security model are being addressed by a set of specifications: Application Lifecycle and Events and its normative dependencies Service Workers [SERVICEWORKERS], Task Scheduler [TASKSCHEDULER], and the Manifest for web applications [appmanifest]. The set of specifications is expected to grow over time to cover more of the domain and use cases.

]]

Philipp - please let us know if this addresses your concerns, or if you have suggestions for rewording.

Thanks,

-Anssi
