As noted on 23 October [1], the following "HTML5 APIs" are ready or  
very close to being ready for Last Call Working Draft (LC):

1. Server-Sent Events
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/eventsource/

2. Web Database
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/webdatabase/

3. Web Sockets API
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/websockets/

4. Web Storage
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/webstorage/

5. Web Workers
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/workers/

Please submit comments about these specs by 19 November.

Note the Process Document states the following regarding the  
significance/meaning of LCWD:

[[
http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr.html#last-call
Purpose: A Working Group's Last Call announcement is a signal that:

* the Working Group believes that it has satisfied its relevant  
technical requirements (e.g., of the charter or requirements  
document) in the Working Draft;

* the Working Group believes that it has satisfied significant  
dependencies with other groups;

* other groups SHOULD review the document to confirm that these  
dependencies have been satisfied.
In general, a Last Call announcement is also a signal that the  
Working Group is planning to advance the technical report to later  
maturity levels.

]]

Additionally, a LCWD should be considered feature-complete with all  
issues resolved; that is, as Chaals noted yesterday, "Last Call means  
the Working Group considers the work to be good".

-Regards, Art Barstow
