Hi Marcos, All,

These are a few editorial comments to the latest P&C ED.

6.6 Icons and 9.1/Step7/<icon>

Step7 requires only a valid path for src attribute:
"Let path be the result of applying the rule for getting a single attribute value to the src attribute. If path is not a valid path, then the user agent must ignore this element and its attributes. Proceed to the next element in the elements list."
 whereas 6.6 is more restrictive and says:
" An icon must be located either at the root of the widget package or at the root of a locale folder."

Therefore I suggest to refer to 6.6 from Step7 is some way, e.g. by creating a new rule for icon path or by just adding some prose in Step7, like:
"Let path be the result of applying the rule for getting a single attribute value to the src attribute. If path is not a valid path or does not fulfill the restriction from 6.6, then the user agent must ignore this element and its attributes. Proceed to the next element in the elements list."

7.12 Note
"A user agent can expose a feature through, for example, an API, in which case a user agent that supports the [Widgets-APIs] specification can allow authors to check if a feature loaded via the hasFeature() method." (Non-normative)
[Widgets-APIs] spec says nothing about loading features, at least now.
It seems not to be agreed that hasFeature() method would be used for that purpose,
specifically because hasFeature() is used in DOM to check for - static IMHO - existence of some module/functionality/feature, and feature loading that is meant within P&C is of dynamic nature.

So I suggest removing that sentence from the note in order not to create a de-facto standard.

Thanks.

Kind regards,
Marcin
