Chairs - if your group has a dependency on Web IDL, please read this 
e-mail ...

During the Web Application WG's face-to-face meeting at TPAC [1], the 
group was made aware  several documents are blocked on the Web IDL CR [2].

The group discussed the dependency issues and resolved to advise others 
to use idlharness.js [3]  to demonstrate proper use of Web IDL in 
specifications. The Web Performance WG is now using idlharness to test 
its usage of Web IDL, for example:

<http://w3c-test.org/webperf/tests/approved/navigation-timing/html5/idlharness.html>
<http://w3c-test.org/webperf/tests/approved/HighResolutionTime/idlharness.html>

Note that idlharness.js is not complete yet but does cover several parts 
of the specification. If you have any questions/comments/etc. about 
idlharness or your document uses a feature not yet supported by 
idlharness, please use the following list:

-Thanks, AB
