Hi Adam,
I'm writing on behalf of the Web Apps WG to inquire as to the status of 
the Media Type Sniffing spec [1]. The Widgets Packaging specification is 
ready to proceed to PR but has a normative dependency on [1]. In order 
for the widget spec to proceed to PR, the W3C has asked the WG to 
ascertain the stability of [1] in terms equivalent to those currently 
used at the W3C (i.e., Last Call Working Draft, Candidate Rec, etc.). 
Could you possibly give your opinion as to the maturity of [1] and if 
you see much chance of it changing (i.e., do you think changes to [1] 
could potentially break implementations of the Widgets Packaging spec)?

Kind regards,
