John, can we change this terminology to "notification" and "URL  
notification"? They are both proposals for notifications APIs for the web,  
so that would make more sense I think.

I have no problem with publishing a draft to seek more feedback, though  
admittedly this did not work great so far with the Web Notifications draft.

Another thing we should look at is the permissions API. Per  
the DAP WG was going to take this over, but nothing much has happened in  
that group thus far. Maybe we should publish a draft.

Publishing Web Notifications as Last Call is for now delayed until John  
addresses the comments raised by Ian. I hope that is not controversial :-)

Kind regards,
