Working Group Resolution (LC-2257):
Thank you for your review.

"chrome" is primary and secondary UI; we've attempted to make that
clearer, by stating that explicitly. 

"widget" is a term used in user interface terminology, which is why we are
using it. 

Without a specific proposal, we were unsure what to mention about the
Widget User Agent. 

A widget signing indicator is beyond the scope of this version of the
spec. But thank you for pointing that out. 

Thank you for the fyi on BONDI and the pointer to DAP.
