It's still not clear to me why those items are covered and messaging  
is not, but if that's the ruling I'm willing to let it go.

Some information on the potential effects of this:

I believe this will lead to Web Apps WG's Web Workers draft having a  
normative dependency on a Working Group Note. Web Workers is in Last  
Call. I believe the end of the Last Call period is before we get  
rechartered. Thus, we will potentially end up asking for CR transition  
with a WG Note normative dependency. Is that going to be acceptable?

Maciej
