Some comments:

- I would like to suggest the name "Web Messaging" for the  
postMessage / MessageChannel deliverable.

- I think the "Other Specifications" section should be clear on the  
right process for adopting new deliverables without having to  
recharter. I think we want a process that is flexible but that retains  
transparency and accountability. I like the idea of writing  
requirements documents for these. Perhaps there should be some sort of  
review process for these requirements documents, in lieu of a full  
recharter cycle.

- I think errata for the existing DOM specs should be stated as in- 
scope. I believe we are the right group to do this, but it's better to  
be explicit. I think this would include even DOM specs where we may  
not plan to publish a whole new version.

- I think it's no longer necessary to cite the previous Web API and  
WAF charters. If we do cite a previous charter it should be the  
previous version of the Web Apps WG charter, It hink.

Maciej
