This question is ambiguous:

"Do you agree that apps must have origins and be part of the Open Web?"

It should really say "addressable HTTP/HTTPS"-based origins (or something similar). All web pages have origins by virtue that HTML's security model depends on it (i.e., "file://", "data://", "app://" are perfectly valid origins - though not particularly helpful in many situations).
