Editorial: Agreed, dropped.

Editorial: Good point. I changed it to:
"In the event that an implementation encounters an invalid Zip archive
during the steps for processing a widget package, the user agent must
abort all processing of the steps for processing a widget package. In
addition, the user agent should notify the end-user that the zip
archive is an invalid Zip archive via an appropriate localized error
message. The means of notifying the end-user, and the wording of the
localized error message, is left to the discretion of implementers.

In the case the UA is a CC, it must inform the author that the Zip
archive is an invalid Zip archive.

Is that any better?
