Here a brief summary of what we discussed at Apple today. Let me know if  
there are any questions. If you have comments please email them to the  
list. As I indicated earlier outcome of the meeting is subject to  

We discussed the remaining two issues with the specification:

* Given that the DAP WG is no longer working on the permissions  
specification we will go with the proposal from Apple to expose the  
permission model as static members of the Notification object.

* We discussed directionality and the outcome was to "ltr", "rtl", and  
"auto", defaulting to "auto", behaving the same as in HTML, but no  
inheritance as 1) it's unclear whether the root element exposes the right  
directionality to begin with and 2) workers don't have a directionality.  
Aharon, Kenny, if you concerns about this approach please let the list  

We also discussed display handling and whether the length of displaying  
was up to the notification platform or the application. Currently it is up  
to the application, but the specification allows for the notification  
platform to set a hard timeout. Aside from timeout configuration, the  
ability for progress bars and displaying actionable buttons in  
notifications came up as well. Proposals for these will be considered for  
a potential future version of Web Notifications. We will work with the W3C  
to recharter as appropriate.
