Were it not for file* I, and perhaps Google as a whole, would likely leave
DAP (though I cannot speak for everyone). Nothing else there is of interest
to me right now.

when a WG is created. When DAP was created, people felt rather strongly
(personally, I disagreed, I know that Arun had similar concerns) that adding
deliverables to WebApps would be a bad idea as it already had many, and
because there was already a lot of traffic on its list. This was discussed
publicly in the months leading up to DAP being chartered (including with
involvement from Mozilla participants) but the eventual balance became the
one we have today. I think (though I do not know for sure) that one factor
in this was the fact that the File API which is so nicely alive today had,
while DAP was being chartered, not been updated since 2006 and was still
called the "File Upload API".
