besides also finding it very interesting, shouldn't we first work on a description of the topic and what is specific for RDWG before we vote for or against it? Peter's comment outlined for me that I don't have a good background how this relates to the existing state of the art and what the research topic would be. The ressources at http://www.w3.org/WAI/IndieUI/wiki/Main_Page, I have to say, are not really helpful yet.
I confess that I have to learn more about the subject - ended my inquiries with XUL a good time ago. OR I could base may vote on a description of the topic in our wiki - would be very helpful for me (and perhaps for others) and I found this a very good helpful approach we took so far.
But I am very curious about this subject now and happy to see it as one of the next topics (what is not a thorough vote).

Yup sounds good to me (biased here of course :-)! If we vote and
decide to go with it, may be nice to put dynamic content/ARIA as a
